Besides the usual calcite concretions, stalagmites and stalactites of various shapes and sizes (including massifs and columns), you’ll also see along the way some circular concretions - disks that seem to defy gravity. At La Cocalière they are at their most beautiful and most unusual, hanging from the vault in fine semi-transparent draperies (or calcite curtains) striated with growth marks, not forgetting the eccentric budding crystals, fistulas and long fine macaroni tubes.
These curiosities of geology are mirrored in the clear blue waters of the natural pools festooned with decorative calcite formations. Those in the Salle des Gours section are arranged in steps and are quite remarkable. A cave pearl under formation won’t fail to capture your attention, all the more so as this natural phenomenon is a sight of extreme rarity.
Near the exit, you’ll see a representation of prehistoric excavations with objects and bones from the Neolithic and Bronze Ages. From there, a little train will take you across the garrigue back to the reception area.
