Owner description: Originally these galleries were used as a quarry to extract a special type of fuller's earth for degreasing wool cloth (the wool cloth had a renowned deep blue almost black color and was much in demand during the Middle Ages). Once the cavities had been dug out, they became hiding-places, storerooms and also meeting places for various gatherings - some freemasons. Graffiti inscriptions, including Masonic symbols, testify to this. Guided tour only with 25 persons maximum for your own safety and to preserve the undergrounds. To be booked when purchasing ticket at the Tourist Office or in the monuments (except museum).

The guide was very good and sympathetic. However the visit does not have enough material to support the rich history of this site.

Opening hours are a bit hard to grasp, but it's worth persevering. We had an excellent 45 min guided tour (just the two of us). The network of subterranean tunnels was originally a quarry, then used to store goods of every kind. Children would love it.
