Already in activity during the roman period, this ancient quarry is called "du roy" in reference to the sun king who ordered massive blocks to ornate the Trianon of his palace in Versailles. This red marble can also be seen in other monuments of Paris, Rome and many churches and bourgeois houses in the region. You can drive or walk up to the quarry following the hiking circuit n°7
