    What to Expect
    Visit: Grotte de Lombrives, Route Nationale 20, 09400 Ussat France

    After a walk of 1.4 kilometers (which you can also do in a small train) your guide will accompany you in "the lair of the giants". Each step takes you from galleries to galleries to discover the formation of concretions, the shaping of an exceptional karstic network.
    Place of burial for men of the Bronze Age, known to Greeks and Romans, place of refuge (Cathars, Protestants ...), Lombrives has always been frequented by men, who left there more than 114 enigmatic symbols and 3,600 names. The oldest date from the sixteenth century as that of the future Henry IV, King of France. This is an opportunity to share key periods of our history (the Bronze Age, Catharism, hunt for Protestants, Henry of Navarre, mythology ....).
    You cross the sacred cathedral with exceptional acoustics. A unique room where artists perform in concert, some visitors meditate, gather, sing. The visit continues at the top of the steps: beautiful concretions, including the Mammoth, the Tomb of Pyrene (mother goddess of the Pyrenees in mythology), the Witch, the Virgin, ...
    Lombrives is a sacred place where the Cathars would have left their spiritual treasure, but it is also a place conducive to meditation.

    OK it is a very large network of caves but not particularly interesting. As a tourist attraction they really should cater better for English speakers. Extensive explanations in French, quite a bit of Dutch but just a few sentences for us Brits. For such historic...More
