Noteworthy for its one-of-a-kind Southern Burgundy landscapes, the Solutré-Pouilly-Vergisson "Grand site" welcomes visitors to a pristine natural area, where the Solutré and Vergisson rocky spurs tower above a highly-renowned vineyard. Climbing these peaks offers spectacular panoramic views overlooking the entire Saône River Valley.

The Prehistory Museum and archaeological / botanical park


Located at the foot of the Roche de Solutré escarpment, this museum displays collections from one of Europe's richest prehistoric deposits: here lies an exceptional hunting ground highly prized for more than 55,000 years by prehistoric peoples hunting thousands of horses and reindeer. This location has retained a sizeable accumulation of bone deposits, which had inspired the famous legend that has since been refuted, of horses thrust over the top of the cliff by these prehistoric hunters. Laid out on the site of the former digs, the archaeological and botanical park nicely complements the museum visit, featuring a wide array of the plants and vegetation characteristic of this natural setting as well as a depiction of key results from local archaeological research.
