Réserve naturelle géologique de Saucats-La Brède

Three minutes away from the Château de la Brède, come and discover the history of our region 20 million years ago, when Aquitaine was covered by the sea in a tropical climate... The Geological Nature Reserve of Saucats-La Brède opens its paths for free walks. Ideally, you should go to the Maison de la Réserve (free entrance to the museum) where you will be given a location map, or take a guided tour lasting about two hours. This begins with the museum collections (shark teeth, corals, tropical shells) and continues with a short walk in the forest by a river where you can admire, among other things, thousands of fossils in the open air. We also offer workshops for children (from 6 years old) accompanied by adults with different themes ranging from the discovery of fossils to small animals. Pour bien vous recevoir : At the moment and until further notice, visits are limited to 15 people with the compulsory wearing of masks in the museum (Maison de la Réserve). The Bernachon site is not yet accessible.
