One of the sites of the Soumont mine, the last iron ore mine in the West, you will see the large machinery and hand tools used in the depths. You will see the last hanging room in the region, the bath house and the lamp workshop in their original state as well as the roadway down which the workers descended 650 metres below ground. A new presentation ‘The Underground Worlds of Calvados’ explains the local geology and includes a virtual descent into the mines 475 metres below.
