A dense network of underground tunnels is hidden away beneath the town's old quarters. Some date back to the Roman era (aqueduct), but the major part was built between the year 1000 and the 13th century. Geology allowed for a complex architecture, often with two levels, the first level often having man-made walls. In a narrow commercial town, extra storage space was needed, which explains why these tunnels were built. La Règle tunnel was La Règle abbey's old cellar.
