Located in the Lot department, in the heart of the Dordogne Valley and a stone's throw from Ro-camadour, the Gouffre de Padirac is the first natural underground heritage site in France.
This natural cavity, 33 metres in diameter and 75 metres deep, opens the doors to a 2 km long underground journey on foot and by boat.
Discovered in 1889 by Edouard-Alfred Martel and opened to the public over 130 years ago, the Gouffre de Padirac has amazed over 26 million visitors.
