The Ridanna Mining World

The Ridanna Mining World is a unique monument to the industrial revolution. A state-of-the-art ore processing plant was built here 150 years ago. Huge machines break and crush the rock, then large flotation basins bring the ores to the surface. Impressive inclined planes and horse-drawn tram routes form the world's largest surface conveyor system, to the ore district high in the mountains. The Poschhaus tunnel leads 6 km right through the mountain into the Passeier Valley.
