A mythical descent 23 m underground to discover a unique industrial heritage.

The only industrial heritage site of its kind in Europe: hydraulic mills buried 23 m underground attest the ingenuity of this region’s inhabitants. A thrilling walk in the bowels of the earth to learn all about this 17th-century invention.
