Tourist Spot Mine
Gain insight into the region's gold mining past at Minas de Oro La Carolina. You'll have the opportunity to explore these now-defunct gold mines, which in the 18th century brought untold riches to the city's populace. After an accidental discovery, the wildest gold rush ever seen in Argentina began. Navigate the deep shafts and cavernous tunnels of the mine, where you'll see remnants of the gold rush still evident: rusty wagons, twisted iron, and abandoned tunnels. Don't worry about equipment: the tour company provides a helmet and boots for the excursion.

  • Visit a mine where you extracted gold, recreate the experience and working conditions, (silence and total darkness!) great experience! It is located in a very small village, La Carolina that grew up around such mine (near Potrero de los Funes) a square and a very ancient Church

  • Great this excursion. You have to know some tunnels of an old gold mine. It is a unique experience to be able to enter a mine.

  • Very nice place, can make the trip to the mine, buy souvenirs, stones, visit the Museum Lafinur, his tomb and a labyrinth of stone. The Carolina village is very picturesque and Omar restaurant never disappoints.
