Located west of Porrentruy, on the border of the Ajoie, Réclère of the caves are among the most amazing natural sights of Switzerland.

Discovered in 1886, the Caves of Réclère immediately hit the first visitors with their splendor to the point that, aware of their incredible wealth, we began operations in 1890!
It's along a developed 1,500 meters you will discover stalagmites and stalactites of rare beauty and great diversity. Thus, you can admire the elegant Pagoda, the enigmatic portrait that hints in his face and a face in profile, the Dome, which with its 15 meters high is the largest stalagmite discovered in Switzerland.
