Lacave Details

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 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.
