La Thuile mine

La Thuile

Ancient documents refer to the presence of coal and silver deposits in La Thuile as early as the 16th century, but the first of the mines, mainly coal mines, exploited by hand, date back to the early 19th century. Towards the end of the 1920s, La Thuile became a mining town, with the mining industry reaching its peak just after the Second World War, after which the activity declined until the mines closed in 1966.


Description of the route

La Thuile offers a series of trails through the woods, from short half-hour walks to longer routes lasting up to over 4 hours, along which it is possible to observe the signs of the tracks once used to transport the carts, the entrances to the tunnels and the ruins of the miners’ shelters.
