It is a geological and paleontological jewel made of alternating marl and limestone in which many fossils have been discovered. The most beautiful are exhibited at Paléospace, a museum dedicated to paleontology and astronomy. Protected natural area, the site must be respected (climbing is prohibited). The collection of fossils is accepted on the beach at the foot of the cliffs and on the sand.
