  • Station built at the beginning of the 20th century.
    There were more than 13 tracks for the transport of goods by train to the Italian regions of Piedmont and Liguria.
    The building is closed, but the station is in operation.

  • The name of the village derives from a monastery built at the end of the 15th century in honour of Saint-Dalmas, the Christian martyr who evangelised the valley in the 3rd century. The original hamlet gradually expanded in the 19th century, when houses built first for the miners and employees of the Vallauria zinc treatment plant ant later for the workers of the hydroelectric plants.
