The Essential
Situated in the Carmausin coal basin, Blaye-les-Mines was the site of an open-cast mine that was in operation from 1985 to 1997. The giant crater that remains, 1km in diameter and 200m deep, has been transformed into Cap'Découverte, a huge attraction park, with sports, shows and culture. A great new vocation.
