Violators usually have to pay a small fine. Despite the fact that the entrance to the cave is prohibited, there are several places open to tourists.

But the secret passages in the catacombs still exist.

In French diggers, there are 3 rules that they must observe and respect:
1) "All that goes down into the earth, should be returned to the surface." This rule must unquestioningly carry out any digger.
