A surprising slate mine, with its underground descent, its low passage-ways, its vast halls where the ZscailtonsZ (the so-named ancient slate quarry workers) at the peril of their lives, day after day dug up the earth to uncover the precious blue stone. A ride into the underground in a cable car and an audio-guided tour during which the geology, extraction methods and work conditions of the miners will hold no secrets.
