Follow Monica to discover this famous site in South Vendée, a 100% mine trip where you will experience the incredible adventure of the local « black faces » !

Let be surprised by the museum, its immersive course from the hanging room, the lamp room and the slope into the reconstituted mine. Explore the cottages of the working class neighbourhood, certified « Petite Cité de Caractère » (small charmed city). Let be impressed by the Carmelo Zagari stained glass windows of the miners chapel too.

It’s time to go for an immersive journey !
