Seashell Valley

In this natural agora in the middle of the boreal forest, discover an ancient shell bed of remarkable purity containing millions of seashells piled one on top of the other for over 10,000 years. This geological site takes you back to the post-glacial period when the entire region lay submerged beneath an ancient sea. Excavation and identification activities allow you to appreciate this unusual phenomenon.
