A diverse heritage

Bois du Cazier, Bois-du-Luc, Le Grand-Hornu and The Pass in the case of Belgium ; Lewarde historic mining centre, 11/19 colliery in Loos-en-Gohelle, Arenberg colliery in Wallers and 9/9bis colliery in Oignies in the case of France are 8 emblematic sites that are a perfect illustration of the diversity of ICI’s heritage. Around them, a multitude of other complementary sites highlight the region’s whole industrial heritage.

Themed routes

The 160 heritage sites are linked by five themed routes that act as an incentive to visit them :
Route 1 : ICI, from here and there... The journey taken by mankind, ideas and technology
Route 2 : To Pays de Vulcain, the artistic melting pot
Route 3 : "Marked" landscapes
Route 4 : Social struggle in action
Route 5 : The art of the engineer

Fresh air by bike

The map also offers you a choice of three routes by bicycle (one cross-border, one in Belgium and one in France). These three exceptional routes combine heritage and environmental discoveries and can be enjoyed by everyone : "Green route in a black country", "In the footsteps of Walloon know-how" and "A route from town to town".
