Espace Pierres Folles
A museum to the "Golden Stoned" Beaujolais area: geology, fossil collection with a giant ichthyosaurus, soils and natural resources and temporary exhibitions. The approved geological trail and botanical garden can be viewed free of charge.
Famous throughout the world for its wines and vineyards, the Beaujolais is also a region shaped by man, who has reaped the benefits of the soil's diversity. Its past is literally written in stone: in the golden, red, white, grey or black rocks and stones that have visibly been put to good use in local construction. This remarkable geology has given rise to great diversity, not only in the landscapes and heritage, but also in terms of human activity, in the culture and traditions that form the identity of the Beaujolais region.
