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.
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".
