Come and discover the Grand-Hornu mining site, listed as world heritage by UNESCO in 2012.

The Grand-Hornu reflects the audacity and the creativity of industry leaders who built impressive architectural sites during the XIXth century industrial revolution.
Belgian became the second most industrialised country in the world - mostly thanks to coal mining.
Its neoclassical architecture as well as its reconversion as a design, applied arts and contemporary creation make it a unique, outstanding site.
