Azé village itself is quite unique as it offers an important national site of historical interest in the form of the "Grottes d'Azé". These are prehistorical caves famous throughout the whole of France. The first human bones from thousand and thousand years ago where found in these caves. Also there are well preserved animal remains who lived in these caves. In summer, tours are organized every day to visit the caves. If you want to know more about the history of the caves, then the museum at “la roche du Solutré” is very recommended for a visit.
