Hidden away within the lush landscapes of the lot-et-Garonne at Sainte Colombe de Villeneuve-sur-Lot, you will find one of the true pearls of aquitaine (South West of France): the Lastournelle caves.
These limestone caves have developed over 25 million years, building up a host of stalactites, stalagmites and limestone tapestries of an incomparable richness.
The Lastournelle Cave was discovered in 1878 when a well was drilled. Farmers living on that property dug down in an attempt to find a water source . They didn’t find water, but instead discovered the cave.
