  • The walk between the 100m high cliffs of the slate quarry is very impressive and one you don't often get to experience. In the tour you learn the history of the place and see a live demo how the large blocks are still cut into thin slates by hand.
  • Fascinating tour of a former slate mine and how the craft of creating slate tiles etc still carries on. Poignant video of times past but wonderful to see a young group of passionate craftsmen keeping the trade alive.
  • Great and informative visit in beautifull environment
  • This old quarry is very beautiful to visit. Because of some geological events a long time ago, this quarry is very exceptional in form. Thin but very high and long rockwalls, deep pits filled with water... It really feels like walking in some canyon in the middle of nature instead of a quarry next to a town. The visits are on fixed hours with a guide and you should check the opening hours before going. In high season it has longer opening hours and more opening days. After visiting the quarry you get an elaborate explanation and demonstration about how they worked the stones. I think we had a French guide and I dont know if they do have English speaking guides, but because the visit isn't very long and the views are impressive I would still suggest the visit. The quarry is in a small village, but on 5 minutes driving there is an very beautiful old town wich is adorable to stroll true.
  • Great visit
