  • The Fontaines quarries were worked from Roman times until the 1960s, particularly for cut stone and ornamental stone masonry. A project for a tourist circuit is currently in progress in order to open up this area to visitors, and is associated with the creation of a museum dedicated to stone working and its local history. Until these are open, the area can be visited with a guide, in order to find out more about the crafts associated with quarries, stone masons and sculptors. Come and hear their stories.
