Gouffre de Poudrey is a single chamber, which is the 10th largest chamber in the World, the largest in France. The huge hall has a flat ceiling which is formed of the massive limestone of the Kimmeridge. Single layers of this limestone correspond to huge, plain areas at the ceiling.
The cave tour includes a light show with laser and slide projection. It explains the history of the cave and tells a fairy tale about a girl who followed the devil into this cave.
