Visit the Pterosaur Beach !
At the end of the Jurassic, 150 million years ago, the Aquitaine Basin was covered by seas. The area of Crayssac was then a large tropical littoral mud flat where crocodilians, pterosaurs, dinosaurs, turtles, crustaceans left their footprints in the mud. Excavated for 25 years, the so-called “Pterosaur Beach” is unique and revealed hundreds of well-preserved animal trackways. This site is protected as a National Geological Reserve.
