Minas de Oro La Carolina, La Carolina

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. Our La Carolina trip itinerary builder makes visiting Minas de Oro La Carolina and other La Carolina attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • I was in the summer of 2008, and I found interesting entering La Carolina tunnels!. Tourism is not very well developed and there are better options in other destinations, as in La Rioja! Even so, if you have the possibility, is worth doing it!

  • Worth the visit, you can go 300 m of mine tunnels, and learn about how it worked there. Beyond the mine vale worth visit to the village in the mountain with beautiful views.

  • 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.
