The tunnels of the quarry are a veritable art gallery of murals hewn into the rock by the troops. There are some 500 such quarries between here and the town of Soissons less than 20 kilometers away, and all have wall carvings. This mural records generals Maunoury and Villaret, both seriously wounded by the same German bullet on March 11, 1915.
