MONT-MARCOU • 34610 Saint Genies de Varensal • AVCFC
The Mont Marcou is a classic cave since Robert de Joly discovered the first part of it up to -65 meters.
Between 1948 and 1966, many generations of speleologists worked to explore this giant cave , which can reach – 345 m.
One of the carateristics is the giant well, Puits du grand Cedre. It has a depth of -146 meters .
The speleologists can access all the classic areas where the walls are naked, without any concretions.
Within the framework of the visits controlled by Association Mount-Marcou, founded in 2002, it is possible to reach towards the coast – 120 m a true geode decorated with an almost single coating aragonitic (indescribable), since only one site exists elsewhere in the World (in South Africa), and of less value
The colours are fantastic with a mix of intense green, and flecst of emerald.
The volume is small, only 3m but the concentration is amazing!
It’s like a natural garden where the vegetation grown over centuries, mixed with nickel. Also the finish is like a bouquet made of mineral flowers.
The scenery is unique.
