Description

The Grotte du Bosc (Cave of Bosc) is located at the small hamlet Le Bosc. The cave is actually the former bed of the Bosc river, but is now dry because the river now flows below the cave. Most of the time the main passage is about four meters wide and ten meters high. It is full of extraordinary speleothems, like disks and sawtooth shawls. The cave was discovered in 1936 by the priest père Pierre Régi.
