The fluorescent waterfall

This 17-meter high fluorescent waterfall was created and realized by Eric L. the Cave's speleologist.

Fluorescein is a dye used in caving and geology to determine the path of underground waters and rivers.
From a test, in another cave, I noticed that under the light of an Ultraviolet (UV) spotlight, the water became fluorescent, with a spectacular visual effect.
In 2012, first test in public with a tank and a pump, just above the waterfall.
After 250 hours of installation, on rope, and full vacuum, inauguration in 2014, with success!
Unique special effect in France.

The discovery of the cave

The cave of Saint Cézaire belongs to the Dozol family, a family of farmers.
It was discovered on June 16, 1890. One day, while cultivating his field, Leon Dozol noticed a hole.
Having no idea that it would change his life, he continued to work his land. The hole was used to empty the vegetable waste from his field.
One rainy day changed his plans. He decided to understand the importance of this hole.
He called upon a friend, Dr. Gebhard, who encouraged him to build the cave.
After several years of hard work, it was in 1900 that the cave welcomed its first visitors.
This cave is part of the first leisure activities near Cannes , Grasse.
