MINES AND METALS IN ALTA VAL SESSERA

 

In Alta Valsessera (Biella), there is a huge archeo-minerary and archeo-metallurgical asset dating from the sixteenth to the nineteenth century,  heritage of the exploitation of silver galena, chalcopyrite and magnetite veins. Excavation and restoration activities, brought about by the Comunità Montana and the Soprintendenza dei Beni Archeologicici, lead to set up two archaeo-metallurgical areas suitable for visits: Rondolere and Opificio. These areas are accesible on foot from Casa del Pescatore, along the Panoramica Zegna Road (SP 232).
