Discover Fumay, the city of Slate, during a guided tour proposed by the city of Fumay as part of its 2017-2018 heritage season.
It is called "the city of the Slate" in reference to the many slate quarries that made the wealth of this city in the nineteenth century. Despite the cessation of activity of the slate quarries of Fumay in the 1900s, the memory of the slate, which made the prosperity of the city, remains present. Today it is still possible to see the vestiges of this past, on the houses, but also by the presence of slate quarries. Just walk the streets of the city and open your eyes to what's around you to see it.
Take advantage of the guided tours offered by the city of Fumay to discover the riches of this slate heritage.
