Come and explore Cogne mines

Mines - Cogne - Aosta Valley

Cogne magnetite mine (among the highest in Europe), with over 100 km of galleries and original machineries, allows visitors to follow the footsteps of generations of miners.

Through a short panoramic walk from Cogne it's possible to reach Costa del Pino, where a magical atmosphere surrounds you: the old buildings, the view, the utensils, the rooms left untouched since the departure of miners and the clank made by the train that brings you inside the galleries. Thanks to that, the visit becomes a unique experience, bringing you back in time.

Jump on the old train with its mine carts and leave for an exciting journey into the mountains, into the mine, into history!

  • The mines are to reach on foot, by a walk to be taken independently on a unpaved road (about 1h30).
  • The site is accessible with authorised guide only, upon reservation.
  • The visits are confirmed with a minimum of 10 participants.
  • Children under 5 are not allowed to enter the mine
