Details

The plateaux and woods in the village of Saint-Crépin-de-Richemont conceal an unusual story which stretches over a span of several thousand years: the extraction of quern stones. Without them, we would not have had bread in our lives. This original industry left behind labyrinthine quarries strewn with quern stones from Roman to Modern times. Discover these quarries by following the path. The quarrymen will lead you through time to the origin of bread and tell you the story of the men who carved out quern stones from these “Rich Mountains”. Explanatory signs. Duration: 1.5 to 2 hours. Circuit length: 2.7 km. Difference of elevation: 100 m. Walking shoes recommended.
