Scladina Cave is one of the major Belgian prehistoric sites, the only one still being excavated and accessible to the public.
High up on the side of a small valley adjacent to the Meuse, Scladina offers a breathtaking view of the Fond des Vaux and allows easy access to the plateau overlooking the valley of the Meuse.
On site, in the heart of the cave, visitors discover the different facets of archeology and can observe the excavators who operate a few meters from them: this is unique. They can see how the remains are identified, examine the working tools and ask their questions directly to the staff.
It is in this jewel of limestone, between stalactites and stalagmites, under a harmonious light, that the ceramics of the students of the Academies will be magnified.
