With very few shops and restaurants, it is not difficult to find silence and tranquility all year round. Seille street, its main road, is an invitation to unveil well-kept gardens and the atmosphere of country life. Walks in the middle of nature lead to the Waterfall du Dard, the source of the river Seille, which cuts the region, and the Caves of Baumes. There, 500 meters of underground galleries meet 120 meters deep. Spaces up to 80 meters high can be explored amid light shows. Already in the rainy season, a new waterfall forms at the entrance of the cave.
It was the foundation of the Benedictine abbey Saint-Pierre, in the 6th century, which gave impetus to the formation of the village of Baume-les-Messieurs in eastern France. The Roman-style building is surrounded by a few dozen small stone houses and features a 12th-century church. Hidden in the center of three valleys, the place is a constant target of archaeological research, which discover the few details of its past.
