What are the lapidaries of the Jura? Lapidary is a historic activity in the Haut-Jura. It involves cutting and polishing coloured stones, mainly used in jewellery. The word "lapidary" comes from the Latin "lapis" meaning "stone".

ACCESS: Go to the village of Septmoncel, then turn off towards "L'Etain" on the Saint-Claude side of the village. Follow the road for 1 km. Drive through the hamlet, then park on the left-hand side of the road at the "Le Chapy / La Couronne" junction. The path starts here.
