The town of Lacave is found in the northwest part of the Lot department, part of the Midi-Pyrenees region. It sits at the foot of the Gramat plateau, and is just 12 kilometers from Souillac and 8 kilometers from Rocamadour. It’s location makes a good home base for your exploration of the region, so consider an EasyToBook.com Lacave hotel as an option for your visit to the area.
There are two main attractions in Lacave – the Caves of Lacave and the Castle of Lacave. The caves, or grottes, weren’t discovered until 1902. But now an electric train takes visitors through a tour of the main caves, with incredibly formed stalactites and stalagmites. The Castle of Lacave is a stronghold that was built at the end of the 11th century. It was attacked during the Revolution and the towers were partially destroyed. It wasn’t until the early 1900s that a new owner repaired the fortress, returning the octagonal turrets to their former state.
