Minerals in rural France are MIND BLOWING – 2

Continuing the series, I’ve said that Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines and Sainte-Croix-aux-Mines are extremely rural French villages where even tourists are advised to stay well away.

Well, if you do risk life and limb and find yourself here, you won’t be surprised to see vestiges of the Roman mines everywhere.

Here, for example, right in the middle of the downtown area there is an ancient Roman mine shaft that has been turned into a flower garden.
