  • Highly recommended! It is not common to access a mine and in the good condition it is ! It is a good experience to get to know something about mining and miners who pioneered the region. The guide, Javier, very didactic and very good treatment. DON'T MISS IT! A piece of history that very few know.

  • It's a different experience. It's the first time I've walked into a mine and I loved the visit. My only criticism is the monotonous tone of the guide although the information it provides is excellent.

  • Excellent place to know what a gold mine was in activity. The guides are geniuses. To eat, the prices very expensive, would be better more variety and something artisanal.
