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 overwhelming when you use Inspirock's itinerary maker.

Really great experience. There was a nice open parking lot. It was easy to find with the signs. Be carful Google maps can send you in a weird way. Better to just to follow the signs. Thé mine was a super experience. The guide was super with lots of good information. It was very cool to see the large chambers below and cool to see the demonstration after.
Great place to see and old mine. Interesting tour inside. Its quite cold downstairs, so don't forget warm clothing.
