A colorful cave made in France

Discovered in 1836 by a hunter, the cave of St. Marcel d’Ardeche is today one of the most fantastic sites in France – in fact, it seems to have been drawn from a fairy tale. The first explorers of the cave were amazed by the swimming pools inside the formation, whose network of rooms reaches 600 meters.

The pools were formed by the accumulation of minerals and calcite. During guided tours visitors can wander into a series of various rooms and river basins.

The pools have various colors and look artificial. To such a point that they have already gotten into at least two French films, Les Deux Mondes and L’âge de Raison. Located in the south of France, near Saint-Remèze, the cave can be visited for € 10.
