The Maison des Pierreux (House of Stone) is a museum of history and local traditions connected with the quarrying of rock. It was created by the Foyer Rural initiative in an old stone house typical for the area. On two floors the original tools of the various trades which revolved around the quarrying are on display, cartwright, blacksmith, and stone mason. Documents and photographs give a good introduction into the daily live during the late 19th and early 20th century.
