The Maxange Caves figure high on the list of major tourist attractions in France and particularly in Nouvelle-Aquitaine. The story of these fabulous caves is as unique as their concretions, and as worthy of being told! Their discovery only dates back to August 2000 when Angel Caballero came across the first concretions whilst directing works at a stone quarry. Realising their importance he decided to open the caves to visitors under the name “Maxange”, the association of two first names, that of Maximilien (his father) and Angel. The public was only able to visit this fabulous site for the first time several years later, from 20 April 2003 onwards. In 2013 the Maxange Caves were included in the official list of remarkable natural sites.
