Es una experiencia distinta. Es la primera vez que entro en una mina y me encantó la visita. Mi única critica es el tono monótono del guía aunque la información que proporciona es excelente. more »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.
It is a very interesting excursion to do since it is part of the history not only of the town but of the whole region. The guide, excellent providing a lot of information. The entrance to the gold mine is a unique experience!
