Former Marcasse Colliery

In a letter to his brother, Theo (letter 151, dated April 1879), Vincent Van Gogh recalled six hours spent underground in "one of the oldest, most dangerous mines in the area, known as Marcasse. (...) It's a dark place, and on first impressions, everything around it has a dark, foreboding appearance." The Marcasse mine closed in 1954.
