Currently we present more than 1,000 sites in 43 European countries. Among these sites there are 80 Anchor Points which build the virtual ERIH main route. On sixteen Regional Routes you can discover the industrial history of these landscapes in detail. All sites relate to thirteen European Theme Routes which show the diversity of European industrial history and their common roots.

Do you know...

that Carrara derives from the Celtic name for quarry?

It is also the name of one of the best-known types of marble in the world and has been mined in Italy since the time of the Romans. Michelangelo and many other artists took their marble blocks from here. Carrara marble has been used to build the cathedral in Florence, St Peter's in Rome, the World Trade Center in New York and the casinos of Las Vegas. In the "Museum of Marble", visitors can get interesting insights into the history and processing of marble, and also take part in guided tours through the quarry.
