The Grotte d'Osselle is located in a cliff overlooking a meander of the river Doubs.
During the French Revolution the cave was used as refuge.
The underground river in one of the lower galleries is spanned by a small stone bridge (built in 1751) enabling visitors to see the so-called Organ Gallery.
