Come and admire the Grotte de Clamouse in the heart of ‘Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert Hérault Gorges’ Classified Site.
The Grotte de Clamouse kept its secrets for millenniums. It was only in 1945 that a team from a Montpellier potholing club discovered this amazing underground world.
The galleries of the Grotte de Clamouse open just a few hundred meters from the Pont du Diable at the edge of the Hérault Gorge. It is a subterranean wonder that the the water has been ceaselessly embellishing for millions of years. It owes its fame to the beauty, variety, abundance and uniqueness of its concretions.
The cave has been classified by the Ecology and Development Ministry as ‘A Scientific and Picturesque Site’. Out of concern for the protection of this fragile environment, the cave’s network of lighting was completely replaced with energy-saving lamps (LED) in 2010. Clamouse is the first tourist cave in Europe thus equipped.
Interesting and original show: ‘Cathedral of time’. A one hour guided tour.
Temperature 16 °C.
