  • The access is very complicated. There is no signage and google map tbm leads to the correct place. Asked in a bar and found easily after noa explain. The visit is very fast, 15 minutes, is very interesting and worth going to, but I think the site could very much more attractive, if there were more explanations about the miners, stories, there could be exposure of coal, etc. Is the only mine of Brazil display and the service is very good, although fast.

  • It is very exciting to know and relive the epic of coal mining. A perfect replica of the German locomotive can visit the mine and learn a lot. The guide knows the subject very well and is very witty. Worth the ride. Cheap, fun and instructive.

  • For your the only Colliery open to visitors in Brazil I think I Valeria to visit. Once there, despite the small size of the circuit visited the Guide and driver make up for anything. The driver of the train arrived to work in the mine and the domina guide very well the subject.

  • People unprepared to meet tourists. Use two weight and two steps to collect tickets. Some people ask for proof of study for children and others do not. Should have at least tourism technicians to receive and disseminate the environment

  • The guide explains about the history of mining and on the exploitation of coal, just like to ride go more inside the mine, a little short, but still quite interesting. Afull when access is almost here the mine a little bad.

  • Place organized and clean. Smart Guide and prepared. Downside is that the tour is very much reduced and disproportionate to the value of the tour.
