  • Very interesting museum. In one building, theres an interesting exhibition about the history of the mine, about sulfur, about other ores and about some other things. In the second building, there are some old compressors and generators. You can also go around and explore the buildings and 2 acid lakes (one of them is blue, the other one red. Both are filled with sulfur and a other poisons.). Those lakes are literally breathtaking... you can smell the sulfur everywhere on the site, but especially in the mill and around the lakes. Sadly, most of the site is in a very neglected condition. For example, there are no engines left in the mill and other buildings, their roofs and parts of the walls already collapsed and the buildings are filled with a disgusting mix of sulfur, dirt, sand, pieces of the walls and the roof and parts of the engines.
  • Worth the trip to other times. Magnificent experience and knowledge, extremely friendly and helpful staff. The visit to the mine is great (and cool) but limited only to a hallway. The restaurant is accessible and very good
