After Gellone, the abbey in the sun, you must visit Clamouse, the cathedral in the night.
Clamouse cave is a must. It was discovered in the late 40s and open for visit in the early 60s. That means that it has never been visited with oil lamp and has not been spoiled by the deposit of charcoal from these lamps, as many ''old'' caves (i.e. visited since the turn of last century : grotte des Demoiselles near Montpellier, grotte de Han in Belgium, etc...). Its the most ''decorated'' cave I know : it is full of concretion of all kind, of all colour and of all size. The visit is really a must. My photos are not of very good quality because of the poor light ! It's the kingdom of night !
