The Petrifying Caves of Savonnières-Villandry

 

Enter the petrifying caves of Savonnières-Villandry, former freestone quarries where nature has come back into its own over the centuries, and you will discover a fascinating universe of underground lakes and limestone concretions.

 

A world where nature is the investigator of an unusual craft: Petrification.

Seepage water, loaded with calcium carbonate, transforms objects into stone and sculpts bas-reliefs.
