Nearby Digne-les-Bains is the Dalle à ammonites. This spot offers a great place to find ammonites. The ammonite slab of Digne-les-Bains is a remarkable natural site. It consists of a rock stratum containing a large number of fossilized ammonites. This site is located approximately 1.5 kilometers north of the town of Digne-les-Bains. This slab tilted at 60 ° is composed of limestone. It has about 1500 ammonites of which 90% are Coroniceras Multicostatum dating from the Sinemurian (Lower Jurassic). These ammonites may reach a diameter of 70 cm. You can also see the nautilus, belemnites, scallops and other bivalves.
