to the European Route of Industrial Heritage, the tourism information network of industrial heritage in Europe. 

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.

where the largest opencast mine in the world can be found?

In Rio Tinto in the south of Spain. The copper ore is mined in the Corta Atalaya pit, that measures 1200 m by 900 m in size and is 350 metres deep. The ore colours the river water red and gives the mine its name. By the way, football was played for the very first time in Spain in the Rio Tinto mines. It was introduced by local English workers after the mine was taken over in 1873.
