    500 km from home, this is a good place for a rest including some adventures. So I did it again, only the chambers, but took a few hours.
    no history yet, just my own story from my other report on this place:

    Parts of it are still in use as a open quarry, some are abandoned, with official tourist walkway (just signs) and a school or education center or something like that in it,
    a large public open quarry and some fenced underground/mountain quarries. A pretty nice place also if not going inside.
    Where you can park your car there are some houses left of a former quarry seddlement,where once 6oo people lived, a wash house, houses with a closed bar and some ruins.
    Some people are still living there, the cars seen in my first report are gone.
    Could find not much infos on the history, work must have stopped at different times there, with different number of workers,
    some breaking stone, others doing further and even art works, as ordered. 5 guys seem to do all the work now.
    Also heared about WW2 oxygene production (for V2) by the Germans, but could not find further informations.I found some thick concrete construction in there,
    might have been this, also read about electric power production by the Nazis, waterpowered, using the nearby source.
    Ok, that's all I can say, even asked in the town hall, but could not get better infos.

    I know that you are all experts in french language, so get some infos and history from this links:

    the sun comes through a hole from the left, passing another chamber, to the right it goes into a further small tunnel ending outside.
    tried to get this on a shot, but didn't work
