MINES DE SEL DE BEX

Bex > Route des Mines de Sel 55
Visit for individuals and families Today, a few kilometres of this immense labyrinth can be visited. This itinerary takes us through the most spectacular and most characteristic of the various mining techniques used since the first gallery was excavated in 1684, up to the present times. An audiovisual presentation (in French, German, English and Italian) installed in an ancient reservoir dug out in 1826 as well as an exhibit allow you to relive all stages of the three centuries of history of salt and the mines. Then a small train brings you to the heart of the mine. From there a pedestrian circuit of about one hour allows you to discover the incredible effort put in the underground search for salt springs, or the desalination of rock containing salt, which, at the time, was worth its weight in gold. TrekkMines adventure Be adventurous and discover the old galleries and shafts apart from our standard tours and benefit from the captivating narratives of our experienced guides. Follow the traces of our miners and go back in time to the 17th century to appreciate the impressive accomplishment carried out exclusively by hand by our ancestors 300 years ago.
