Cave Lombrives is one of the largest caves in France. It is in Ariège, near Tarascon-in-Ariège .

This huge cave was carved by the water of the Ariege. By dint of passage, the river formed a 39-kilometer long karst system which consists of 7 levels. There are also over 200 entries!

Some rooms have an impressive volume: the hall of the Cathedral is as imposing as the Notre-Dame-de-Paris Cathedral and the Satan Empire room is 4 times larger! There are many stalagmites, stalactites and various concretions suggesting forms such as the mammoth, the Owl, the Witch, ...

It is difficult to say when the cave was inhabited for the first time but we know it served as a refuge many times. First for the prehistoric man and for hermits, lepers, shepherds or robbers and counterfeiters. She was also a refuge for Cathar bishop Amiel Aicard in 1244, following the fall of the castle of Montsegur but also for priests and nobles hiding from Republicans during the French Revolution. An engraving dating from 1578 mentions King Henry IV but there is no evidence of his coming.

Cave Lombrives can be discovered through tours of variable length (from 1:30 to 5 hours), the length depends on the selected visit. Every year several events take place there such as concerts, shows and New Year's Eve
