Under the expert guidance of locals, you will learn many interesting facts about the history of the newly restored Cheva Plattas da Fex quarry.

The old quarry at the back of the idyllic Val Fex has been given a new lease of life. The short documentary film "November is sure to come", which is shown in the old stables at Alp da Segl, introduces visitors to the topic of the "giovellais" (stonemasons). Afterwards, hike together from Alp da Segl up to the exciting, mystical site of the old quarry "CHEVA PLATTAS DA FEX". There, surrounded by thousands of fragments of the Fexer slabs of the Muott?Ota, there is a lot to learn: Stories about the people of Val Malenco and their hard life, the origin and geology of the quarry, the importance, extraction and use of the Fex slabs. You can see how the workers were housed and the collapsed tunnels where they dug.
