Here, the Causses du Quercy tell the story of 200 million years of life on our mother earth. Did you know that in the Jurassic period, instead of these vast landscapes, there was a tropical lagoon that had nothing to envy to the Bahamas !
Since the sea has definitely retreated, many climatic changes have taken place. The Causses du Quercy followed these changes and were successively transformed into tropical forest, savannah, and again into icy steppe walked by mammoths. Our subsoil has kept in memory these great changes and allows us today to read a part of the history of the Earth.
