Saint-Avold
The Essential
It may be difficult to believe, but Saint Avold is well and truly in the heart of mining country. Apart from its old houses, cobbled streets and fountains, it boasts two outstanding edifices, the castle of Henriette of Lorraine, today the town hall, and Saint-Nabor abbey. For all that, it is still possible to explore the world of mining. Twenty kilometres away, the Wendel Colliery, now a museum, is the only coal extraction site in France to have been entirely preserved.
