La grotte du Célary


At 1200m, a few kilometers from the village of Lamoura, the Grotte Du Célary is a geological and historical curiosity that will offer you a beautiful panorama of the Combe de Tressus.

A bit of history :
1815: the great defeat of the French armies. The armies of the Austrian, Prussian and Russian monarchies swept over France. French regiments retreat southwards through the Jura mountains. Prussian and Russian contingents set off in pursuit, devastating the Upper Jura. The women, the girls and... the cheeses find refuge in the cave of Célary..
