You’re in for a surprise. The cave has been turned into a sanctuary dedicated to the Holy Family. A flow of fresh air comes up from its depths.

For a long time, Jourdy cave was used as a hiding place for the vicars of Mieussy during the period of terror from 1792 to 1796. There is a plaque fixed to the wall of the cave to display that this sanctuary for the Holy Family was first established on 8th May 1881.
