Samen met 11 andere vrijwilligers ga je voor 13 dagen naar een restauratie en cultuurproject.

You will be working underground in the Discovery Room. The work will consist on securing and making the exit of the the San Felice gallery accesible: by installing a ramp and a stone staircase. The materials (sand and lime) for this project will be delivered to the site by helicopter. You will be working four days per week from 08:30 to 12:00 and 14:00 to 17:30. You will be accompanied by a technical supervisor and this work-camp will be archaeologically monitored.
You will be sharing a room with 3-4 other volunteers. Bathrooms are also shared. Meals are prepared by our kitchen staff. You will be asked to lend a hand with the preparation of some food, tidying the dining area, and doing the dishes.
Tende – 2 hours from Nice by train. Neige & Merveilles is located at 1.500 metres above sea level in an isolated mountainous area, 10 km from the Closest village of Tende, and 50 km from Vintimille (Italy). Leisure activities: The program of activities that we offer will allow you to discover the Alpine environment where we are located, as well as the discovery of the region’s historical and cultural heritage. Discovering the mining village and previous work carried out at the site will be an important part of your stay. You will also be able to participate in other activities such as hiking, visiting picturesque villages in the Roya-Bévéra valley, and sporting activities such as visiting a forest adventure centre.
You will be participating in this heritage site’s development project, which aims to open the silver mine to the public. Since 2011, volunteer workcamps have been reviving the accessibility to this site, both above and underground. Archaeological digs have also been taking place since 2009. The Vallauria mine was exploited between the Middle Ages and 1930. Today the site represents an example of remarkably well conserved historical and geological heritage, and is one of the most important mines in the Alps.
You will be working underground.
