Scierie des Carrières de Maffle: the art of cutting stone
Guided tour and discovery
For 125 years, the Scierie des Carrières de Maffle has been working Belgian Blue stone from the Soignies Quarries to make stunning architectural pieces (chimneys, letterboxes, stairs...). Why not stop by to see the stonecutters at work?
The stonecutters will show you the various techniques used along the whole process, from a 3-5 tons block from the quarry to the end result.
You may have heard Belgium has recently faced torrential rain, causing dramatic floods. Many regions have been touched by this natural catastrophe. We are doing our best to help all travellers coming to Wallonia. Some sites are, as you can understand, not accessible for the time being.
