Asphalt Mines

mines d asphalte, Discover the canton of Neuchatel and the Jura, swiss7 blog

We have often heard the old asphalt mines but had never taken the time to go there. With friends who we wanted to explore the area, we carried out the survey.
The welcome was very friendly, a perfectly bilingual guide immediately put a good atmosphere in the group. The entire route is very interesting and captivating. It is hard to believe that only a few decades men worked in the mines in very difficult conditions.
After 1 hour 30, we were back in the light and did not see the time passing. At the end, we also understood why the ham cooked in asphalt is so good. I will not reveal, you must go there yourself …
Excellent tour, very interesting and very competent guide. Bravo and thank you.
