The mine site of Plombières hosts a nature reserve which is characterised by the presence of calamine lawns. They are home to particular fauna and flora linked to the concentration of zinc or other heavy metals in the substrate.  Their range is limited in Europe that’s why many of these species are endemic. The calamine pansy is the most representative.

You can still find lost in the vegetation, old remains of ancient metallurgical exploitations.  The watercourse ‘Gueule’ crosses the site, that helps to diversify the natural environment.  The point of view from the ‘Gueule’ rushing into the cave is worth a look.

Free and accessible all the year.
