  • A very interesting experience, lives a very special climate in the mine and thanks to the Guide, it is possible to understand what in there is lived among the miners. A place with good standards of safety and care. The entire environment is very beautiful. highly recommended... There are paved road to get.

  • The truth that to the mine not went so not is if are spectacular or not; I found opinions varied on the road and not we end up deciding. If we went to the village, very small but cute, to know the place.

  • Is beautiful the people with their houses and roads of stone. We leave the car next to the local tracks after having paid the visit which is in groups and we needed an hour. We toured the village walking through their wooden bridges. We ate delicious homemade pies and cheap that a lady who lives makes one block approx of the monument to the miner and we sat on a few benches of stone in the shade. For the visit to the mine the delivered equipment and they were telling us your story. Within the mine mos gave to try the water which is patio. The guide is really very good, has good vibes and explains very well. Listen to and attends to all what you ask and jokes with the guys. My sons came out happy. We ended up c the visit to the Museum and a road along the River with very beautiful landscapes
