Cave Courniou and draperies that of Lauzinas classified for fifteen years and its fossilized clay mushroom cave asparagus and white and blue aragonite, the Cave of the Artenac with its prehistoric fossils , or the Sistine Chapel and Macoumé, fully covered cavity aragonite dazzling white, illustrate these geological wonders ...
 
Over thousands of years, they have served as homes for the first men (cave Camprafaud) burial, hiding (guerrillas ...) or have been exploited for guano, a natural fertilizer (Julio cave). They are also home to a fragile cave fauna and often unloved: bats.
