At St-Jean-des-Vignes, near Belmont-sur-Azergues, there is an excellent museum, the Espace Pierre Folles ("Space of Crazy Stones"). The museum is dedicated to the general geological history of the region, and holds a room with excellent finds from the area (the Beaujolais, better known for its wine than for its fossils), a botanical garden, and a geological promenade.
