The Réclère Grottos were discovered in 1886 and immediately made such an impression on the first visitors that the caves were being used as a tourist attraction from 1890! The Grottoes of Réclère can be visited with a guide on an easily accessible small path.
For 1.5 km beautiful stalagmites and stalactites adorn the path, and the elegant Pagoda and Dome with their impressive dimensions leave the visitor with respect and admiration for what nature has created over thousands of years.
Next to the Grottos is the new Prehisto-Parc. This 2 km cultural and educational path takes you through a magnificent wood and demonstrates the evolution of life from the first fish, the dinosaurs, and other fantastic animals that have lived on our planet, to comparatively recent mammals.
