Adjacent to the mightily impressive Chateau de Villandry, in the Loire Valley, are the petrified caves (‘grottes’), which have been a local tourist attraction for many years (not recommended for claustrophobes though).
The current visitor centre is comparatively modern, but there remain a few vestiges from earlier years, including these various doors:
