  • The magic of the underground, well worth a visit for those who like the stone and the story that follows, well seen to the superbly exhibitions of works of art. Admission to €14,00 is maybe a tad expensive and may deter families with children.

  • The career is a pure return to the past. Should not be wrong in what they pick. No frills, no marketing plan, it is the past in its raw state. Once the door closed must take his time listen, watch, read and let the atmosphere prevailing there. This is my second visit and I still enjoy this place. The history of the castles of the Loire is also that.

  • Before entering please understand what one is doing here. The price may seem student when you come with your family. I advise against it even with children who won't that very little interest. It is a long Gallery of 750 m where it is very cool. A fleece is indispensable. The place is dark and little put at ease the claustrophobic people. The purpose of this visit is to understand the work and the extraction of the stone used to build the castles and local houses. When speaking of painfulness to work today, this return back not so long ago, gives to think. What should be improved as soon as possible, it's the explanatory way of each items, read long texts in the half-light and cool is not an easy task. But, to means, certainly difficult to find. The tour is almost impossible. For lovers of the stone.

  • This is the best site i visited in all of France. The art installations within this quarry are outstanding. The site itself is beyond comprehension. The couple that maintain the site and their adorable Great Pyrenees's are the best. You must go here.
  • Very nice good career development by the organized course. We understand the work of the workers of the time and the operation of the site for centuries. Present contemporary works which bring a real appeal. To visit absolutely!
