One of the many tourist attractions in the Perigord are the caves at Le Gouffre de Proumeyssac which now invites visitors to participate in producing electricity to help power the amazing Cathedral of Crystal. Pedalling on a “Velwatte” bike-generator before or after their visit to the Caves for an average of ten minutes will produce around 8 watts of power.
The eco friendly bikes form part of the site’s commitment to lowering its environmental impact for which it received the NF Environment Eco label in 2016.
The “Cathedral of Crystal”, with its stunning light effects are open everyday.
Discovered in 1907 and opened to the public in 1924, it is the largest cave in the Perigord and listed as a “site of picturesque interest” since 1991. In the Summer it will be holding a concert by Jean Claude Borelly in the heart of the Cathedral of Crystal.
