Eisden Tuinwijk and the mining past
Discover the Eisden garden district and mining monuments. Anyone looking for Eisden's mining past will discover traces that are as diverse as they are striking. They stood up like exclamation marks in a story that threatened to be erased after the mine closed, when the total demolition of the mine patrimony was fixed. A mining site which, with its facades, forms the architectural final element of the residential cores: the old cités. In addition, four restored and reused mining buildings, a director's and a miner's residence, three statues, each representing its own period in the visual arts, a castle... An offer that, against its uniform background, could not be more varied.
