Exploration and discovery may become the most important part of your holiday in La Thuile. The territory contains a wealth of history going back to the ancient populations who inhabited this border land, but there are also a lot more recent sites to discover from the days when La Thuile was an important mining town. Strolling through the town you will come across St Nicholas’ church which has not yet been dated accurately but is mentioned in documents dated 1100. There are many chapels in La Thuile’s numerous villages erected during between the 17th and19th centuries. Wearing snowshoes and with the help of a guide, you can explore the miners’ trails and shaft entrances. If the underwater world appeals to you, then you mustn’t miss a dive below the ice which covers LakeVerney in winter.
