Description: A huge 300 acre natural site with a host of unusual rock formations created by water, wind and time of which any modern day sculptor would be proud. This is a fascinating place to wonder around especially in springtime when there is the added attraction of seeing the flora and fauna typical of the landscape, like wild orchids and anemones.

Location: On the Causse Noir, the site is easily accessible from the new A75. Situated on D991 east of  the Viaduc de Millau.

General Info: Open from mid March to mid Nov without interruption. Adults €6* Aged 5-15 €4* Aged 15-20 €5*. Land train to the site is extra.

Our recommendations: This is an exposed site so time your visit carefully. Use the train if you have small or those who would rather not walk too far. Perhaps combine with a visit to Aven Armand, a short car ride to the east (a combined ticket is available).

For the children: Great for running around and trying to think up names for the various rock formations.
