In the canyon of the Erue valley, two caves with geological and Stone Age interest are open to the public: the grotte Margot, listed as an historic monument, kingdom of bats and legends, and the grotte de Rochefort, a fifteen-metre deep cave where you will find stalactites, stalagmites, columns etc. Humans are known to have lived here 100,000 years ago and the caves still bear traces of them. Open from 15th March to 15th November.
