  • An underground attraction covering more than a hectare beneath the town of Châteaudun, explore this natural cellar formed in the limestone and discover the diversity of this subterranean world: galleries, pillars, giant pots... At the end of the tour the caves are illuminated in vibrant colour.

Like an open book...

Like an open book about the history of the Earth, such as the visible layer of the extinction of dinosaurs, the Grottoes of Foulon have a lot of secrets in store for us, such as the giant marine mammal bones discovered in 2010.
