Like the Matata caves, they are one of Charente-Maritime’s main tourist attractions. These cavities were used as houses in Gallo-Roman times. They were then the refuge of pirates, shipwrecked sailors, wreck raiders and smugglers.

An original and unusual visit just 20 minutes from Camping Paradis Les Pins!
