The Grottes de St-Antoine de Padoue (Caves of Saint Anthony from Padua) are actually a single huge cavern, a former limestone quarry, which was transformed into a catholic church during the Middle Ages. Later a new church was built on top of the rock which has the same name. But the cave church still exists and is a consecrated church which is open to visitors daily. There is a guided tour once a week, which is held by one of the monks which operate the site.
