TrogloNature Unesco World Heritage

Trip to Saumur

Troglodyte park in Saumur

As a family, come and enjoy a day in the Pierre et Lumière troglodyte site: a real underground world in which you will explore the troglodyte galleries to discover the emblematic monuments of the Val-de-Loire: from Anjou to Touraine, passing through Saumurois.

Family activity near Saumur

Between discovery, heritage, and troglodyte caves, Pierre et Lumière will offer you superb memories of this family outing, which will appeal to children and adults alike.

Impressive sculptures made from several hundred tons of stone. Activity to do with family, couple or friends: admire a subtle luminous staging revealing the beauty of the volumes and the smallest details of our sculptures: castles, churches, towns and villages.

At the end of this family activity, the children will have the experience of becoming real stone sculptors. Equipped with a tufa stone, tools and wise advice, it will be their turn to shape their works in this characteristic rock of Saumur Val-de-Loire: tufa.
