Meet nature and witnesses to the industrial past

A walk in an unusual place tempts you?

The Ampsin quarry, classified as a State Nature Reserve, has a didactic geological trail through which visitors can better understand the extraction work, the nature of the rocks and the development of a particular biodiversity.

You’ll find a wide variety of biotopes: wetlands, rock faces with cliffs, grassy wastelands, forest facies… which is obviously conducive to the development of many species of wildlife animal and plant life.

The quarry therefore has an open-access walk where witnesses of this industrial past (the lime kilns) rub shoulders with nature, and an itinerary accessible only when accompanied by an approved nature guide.
