Almost a century after the closure of the subterranean works, the Recht slate quarry has become an outstanding tourist destination. Roughly 400 metres long, the lower gallery leads to the centre of a gigantic installation, which is nicknamed “the cathedral” on account of its impressive dimensions. Also explore vast rooms where shale was once extracted, as you follow an 800-metre trail which has a panoramic observation bridge. During the tour, you will learn more about the region’s geological characteristics, exploitation techniques and working conditions in the mine.
