    It is said that the gorges near Ferrette were inhabited long ago. Dwarves lived there and lived in the cavities. These kind creatures had eternal youth and beautiful childlike faces with shining eyes. Their little cave houses were decorated with all sorts of silver objects.
    To the left of the Grotte des Nains, where the Smurfs live, there is a crack through the rock, here you can climb onto the plateau and enjoy the beautiful view.

    According to legend, this cave was inhabited by a tribe of dwarves. These dwarves, in Alsatian Erdwibala and Erdmanala, were of great beauty and enjoyed eternal youth.
    They were very benevolent and helped the peasants of the surroundings in their work, however always wearing long dresses which hid their feet.
    Some young girls of the valley decided to unravel this mystery and hid themselves near the cave, after having covered with fine sand the stones at the entrance of the cave. When the dwarves came out of the cave, the girls saw their goat's foot traces and burst out laughing.
    The dwarves were very upset, retreated into the cave and were never seen again ...
