The stone extracted in this quarry (for 2000 years) was used in the building of many Parisian monuments. In the impressive caves, you will see the marks of the traditional tools used by quarrymen throughout the centuries. In this "upside down cathedral" you will discover what the work of a quarryman was years ago, but also how cutters and sculptors work today. A visit for everyone. Whatever the weather...
