    An interesting walk with history, a place frozen in time, you can visit the interior of the mine, which has numerous tunnels, gold was extracted from there. Today it is used for tourism.

    We finally went this year to the mine of the condors, Concarán! Now enter is incredible see an abandoned village, it makes you feel chills... visit their destroyed houses, your hotel, your life... The entrance us cost $ 250 each. There was no where to eat either... then a boy we led to the mine. They give you boots, helmet and the headlights... Enter the mine, walk, even if it is only the first level while listening to the story of the Guide, you located in moments earlier, those which those miners many gave their lives to bring the tungsten... A visit impossible to Miss! Very recommended!
