La Grotte du Loup

Historic site and monument in Nances
  • It is a mysterious under block shelter, that might have been occupied by a wolf once!
    A recent theory explains that this place was part of an ancient pre-celtic sanctuary (-450 before Christ), sacred place related to astronomy.

  • During the winter and summer solstices, people can see the sun through two distinct natural holes that have been partially set up by mankind.
    In front of the "cave", a largely held up platform enables you to gaze at the phenomena.
    This sanctuary might be the proof of the astronomical knowledge of mankind at the beginning of the iron age.
