  • We love the trip, road to the mine are long to rain with hail and despite this we could do it, in extra that we allowed to observe a waterfall inside the mine that is not usual to see. The Guide Gaston we transported in time with his story, very entertaining and great knowledge. Excellent experience.

  • It is very interesting for those who want to understand what was the work there inside and imagine how he will have been in so many other famous sites similar. It is not for anyone, not by the degree of difficulty, but by what is going to be. It's fascinating when one is entering the tunnel and diminishes light until at a certain point completely blind along with the rest of the Group at every step

  • If you are in the area worth visiting it, but travel within the mine is like walking down a hallway straight. They seem more entertaining mines of Paramillo in Mendoza or even with the small thing that are Wanda at Misioes. The helpful guide was able to explain the history. For children or people who never were mine, the experience is grata (with lighted helmets, boots and others)

  • A place full of history... the guides are very friendly. The journey to the mine is not more than 230pesos per person and worth. Inside of mine one could appreciate the life that had the miners and difficult it was to extract the gold. After 1 hour of travel inside the mine, one can prove its author search for gold in the river... It is ideal to go on the day.
