  • It is commendable that preserve a site with these features, the value of this visit is currently two hundred pesos per person. It's worth the time. It is not so distant from the city of Merlo, but the road is gravel in poor condition. * It is a unique car. It is not dangerous. It is not winding. It is alarming to know in appalling and inhumane conditions in which miners lived. There is no 100 years that stopped working, but around 30 years. Instead they provide gumboots to knee, helmet and headlight. An expert guide enters the mine next to the small group and will explain masterfully and in detail during the tour, relation to mine, its history and performance, and way of life of the miners. It lasts approximately 40 minutes. Prior coordination arriving, in the Administration, if they wish, they sell at prices reasonable, something light to eat prepared by them. The few employees of the place are very friendly. It has a beautiful view of a mighty river-
