  • Visit the mine it Mexican is an adventure from the start. All the way, at times impassable is unique, changing landscapes, colors, height, this mine to 4600msnm. Found in the deposits of ochre, halfway to a marriage that is in charge of exploiting them in the middle of nowhere, literally. More forward, them ruins of a mine to which today day is difficult get and that was expplotada to end of the century XIX and principles of the XX and in which built the cableway more long of the world simply you leaves without words. A place unique to visit if you can!
