How? Never heard of the Grotte de Lorette-Rochefort? Considered to be the little sister of the famous Han Cave, the Lorette Cave is no less surprising with its descent to a depth of 60 metres!
Put on your walking shoes and embark on this impressive descent into the bowels of the earth. Just as in nearby Han, you’ll discover imposing rooms and galleries full of mystery. Particularly impressive in size are the evocatively-named, Great Hall of the Sabbath and the Cataclysm. Once you reach the bottom of the famous 60-metre drop, watch a hot-air balloon ascend to reveal the full height of the space. Spoiler alert: it’s high! And then? Enjoy an equally awe-inspiring sound and light show.
Once you’re back in the open air, carry on learning by visiting the Pavilion opposite, where you can dive into the Videokarst: a documentary that explains tectonic phenomena. An enriching visit full of surprises that you can combine with a visit to the Caves of Han and its wildlife park, the Malagne Archaeopark or the Rochefort tourist train (yes, the city is only 300 meters away so take advantage of it!). Let yourself be surprised by the Grotte de Lorette-Rochefort and its fascinating underground journey...
