Our site offers you the tourist visit of one of the typical peculiarities of the region: the troglodytes of plain.

 


Like troglodytes of hillsides, such as one can find in Saumur on the borders of the Loire, the troglodytes of plains are not as visible.

Indeed, their peculiarity is that the stone, here the falun, is extracted vertically and not horizontally as one can do it for the tufa. To access it, you have to go underground ...

On our site Terre de rose, you will find three different troglodyte rooms:

  • A room with an explanatory video on falun extraction,
  • a specialized room on troglodyte cellars,
  • and finally, a room where you will find a fouace oven.
