An extraordinary industrial history that delves into the lives of the 19th century's captains of industry, with the Schneider family. This empire of iron, steel and coal, centred in the Le Creusot-Montceau region, experienced an amazing destiny. At the same time, the ceramics and earthenware sector was thriving along the banks of the Canal du Centre, from Le Creusot to Digoin, Paray-le-Monial and out to Charolles. Travel along the Heritage road to rediscover this bygone industrial era of such richness and wonder.
