  • Not to be missed: the imposing Henri-Paul foundry, near the Canal du Centre.

  • Montchanin, born in 1854 in the heart of a coal basin exploited mainly in the 19th century, is located at a communication hub. The Canal du Center and the railway contributed to its growth, encouraging the Schneiders to set up a steel industry there. At the same time, clay made the city the capital of the tile and ceramic industry.
