An Underground Chamber of Scientific Interest located along the geological path, the Comblain Cave was carved by underground waters which resurface at the Windmill spring in the centre of the village. Tour guides ensure the site is protected while introducing visitors to the underground world. In the reception building, teaching models illustrate the caves' formation (from 350 million years ago to the present day). Inside, you will find stalactites, stalagmites, draperies, soda straws and other micro-gours. Their colours vary according to the elements the water meets as it percolates through the soil and sub-soil.
A real laboratory, the Comblain Cave still draws the attention of many scientists who study and try to understand the evolution of its fauna and specific climate.
