The geological nature reserve
Your visit will continue in the old limestone quarry, where there is now a Geological Nature Reserve of worldwide reputation and reference of geological times.
The site is presented in a form that lets us imagine a great mineral amphitheater with a sublime landscape.
It bears witness to what happened 71.6 million years ago in these ancient sea beds, where a multitude of animal and plant remains, such as dinosaur vertebrae, were deposited.
In the heart of this site, we can meet a large number of plant species but also animal species to protect as amphibians, forest birds but also raptors of cliffs.
