Abandoned and mostly reclaimed limestone quarries on Monte Tomelon, near the border with the municipal territory of Mezzane di Sotto.

Quarrying activities began with the construction of a cement plant in 1922, that used the limestone rocks of Monte Tomelon and employed over 150 people. Production began to decline in the 1960s and the plant was definitely closed in 1975. Some years ago an excavation in the former quarry area, where now there is a large vineyard, favoured the discovery of some well-crystallised minerals (Boscardin, 2014).
