  • Visit the caves of the Foulon (the one who trod the skins of animals to clean), it is firstly to say that you are 40 metres under the city, with galleries that extend over many kilometres (at least until Marboué). It is also to say that there are 90 million years it was an ocean that after the meteorite hit the Earth and led to the disappearance of the dinosaurs, is warmed up with for consequence the formation of marine quartz and chalcedony, according to geodes our guide, you can see only in one place in the world, in this case in the caves of the fuller. Inhabited by man from the lower Paleolithic 300000 years ago (many exposed carved Flint tools attest), this place was also a place of refuge for the inhabitants of Chateaudun on 18 October 1870 when the Prussians invaded the city... In short, the caves of the fuller is a historical place which our guide was able to speak with fervor and humour for one hour a little out of time. Let's try!

  • Very amazing visit because he is a marine Cave of geodes. Here nothing to do with the usual visits to the big avens. Everything is subtle and more than a scientific interest. Very friendly and humorous guide!
