Presentation of the grottos

The Betharram Grottos were the first Grottos in France to be opened to the public and can be visited since 1903.

Located between Pau and Lourdes, they are opened to visit from February to October. There, you will have fun learning how the grottos form, as well as the stalactites and stalagmites.

Prepare to experience a great adventure of about 1h20! You will go through a mountain, take the little train and even travel by boat. From this former river, a tributary of the Gave de Pau, you will observe surprising erosion phenomena.

The audio explications are available in 7 languages and complement the friendly, dynamic and pedagogic presentation of the guides.
