  • Unfortunately, the woodbox vegetation (whether on or around the rock) is ravaged by caterpillars (boxwood pyrale). However, this does not seem to bother winemakers, who are more concerned about their harvest than with the beauty of the landscapes around them.

  • The place is unique, the Solutré Rock, made famous by François Mitterand, is a limestone "Butte witness" witness to the limestone deposits left by the sea that occupied the site more than 200 million years ago. the sea receded, erosion played, but "the rock", like its twin, made up of harder materials, resisted. The ascent is easy, the path well marked and well marked opens up beautiful perspectives that reveal the landscape. Surprisingly in Burgundy, we hear cicadas, La Roche de Solutré has given birth to a Mediterranean botanical ensemble. To do absolutely, provide water if it is hot, but no special equipment necessary to climb. On the descent, take the time to visit the Museum of Prehistory, which traces the history of the discovery of the site and the excavations that were carried out there. the place gave its name to a Paleolithic period, the "Solutrean".
