Belvédère des Roches - Carrière et Matériaux du Grand Ouest - Carrière du Pont

The Roches lookout, open all year round, offers a panoramic view of the quarry and the Gâtine Poitevine landscape. Two panels explain the quarrying and processing industry, allowing visitors to explore the site independently.
Located in the Thouet valley, 1.5 km from the center of La Peyratte, the Pont quarry has been operated by CMGO since the COLAS Group took over the Rambaud family business, founded in the 1950s, in 2012. The quarry stretches along both sides of the Thouet, covering an area of almost 80 hectares.
Free tours are scheduled every summer (see "L'Homme et la Pierre" program). Commented by a guide and a technician from the company, they take visitors down to the heart of the quarry to discover all its special features.
