Gouffre de Padirac & Rocamadour


The Gouffre de Padirac is a cave which is a result of a subterranean river. The chasm itself is approximately 99 m (320 ft) around its rim with a diameter of approximately 35 metres (110 ft). Visitors descend 75 m via a lift or a staircase before entering the cave system. The cave, at a depth of 103 metres (340 ft), contains a subterranean river system that is partly negotiable by boat. We wanted to see that and enjoyed, next to the stalagmites and stalactites, the trip at the river of the cave.
After that we wanted to go back above ground and discovered the city Rocamadour. This is a city which is built in a face (wall of a montain). In the Saint-Saveur church, which is an UNESCO World Heritage Site, you can find a black Mother of Dog, which is carved out of one wooden piece. But I will point to the photos now and can suggest to go over there. We enjoyed the time and the dinner which we had for the end of the day.
