Partnership for the development of the stone circuit in Euville

At the heart of the Coasts of Meuse, the former quarries of Euville are one of the most emblematic site in Lorraine. They have been shaped by men who have exploited the resources of nature for a long time, and nowadays they represent a remarkable, impressive landscape which combines mineral and plant world around a former industrial site.

School activities about geology, stone and environment

Who are we?

The Partnership for the development of the stone circuit in Euville (the ADCPE in French) manages the Villasatel and the stone cutting workshop of the Euville quarries. It owns the French “Youth and Sports” certificate and is approved by the National Education.


The team collaborates with the Regional Natural Park of Lorraine and the Tourist Office of the Land of Commercy to organize different events.
