Places to visit
Iron, copper, silver, lead and other minerals: Valsassina has always been rich. Melting furnaces, bellows, forges, strong arms and skilled hands over the centuries have forged swords, nails, cannon balls, agricultural tools and everything that could be produced from the extracted and processed metals. For centuries the noise of knitting has resounded in the valley. With the reopening of the Primaluna mines it is now possible to penetrate the bowels of the Grigna: 1,000 meters of illuminated galleries to travel through time and space, discovering a place full of charm and history. Along the path that winds through the galleries you come across an extraordinary environment, full of unpredictable colors and precious artifacts, like the tools used by miners in their hard work.
