Trip Planner: Europe / France / Pays de la Loire / Maine et Loire / Segre-en-Anjou Bleu / Noyant-la-Gravoyere / La Mine Bleue
Go underground--way under--in search of miners' stories from France’s industrial age at La Mine Bleue. Once a functioning slate quarry that shipped most of what was mined to the United Kingdom, it’s now an underground gallery immortalizing the lives of the men, women, and children who worked there. Discover what life was like for these workers at 126 m (413 ft) with a sound and light show projected on the walls of the pit and accompanied by a guide’s detailed explanations. After, explore the grounds, where exhibitions further commemorating the lives of the workers are on display alongside pleasant, low-impact hiking trails. Planning Noyant-la-Gravoyere trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.

126 meters underground! A first for me and probably for many. We learn a lot about this blue rock, its origin, its exploitation, etc, etc., thanks to guides who know their subject and make us participate. Informative, exotic and I'm not even talking about the little train of mine!!! To see.
