  • Very interesting to visit, before the entry has an explanation about the history of mining in Brazil and a mining culture, a lot of thing I had no idea. The entry is 25 and we went with a guide who will explain about the construction of the mine, trivia. The mine is well preserved, the floor is very uneven. I loved the explanations.

  • The ride is pretty cool and all of it has a local guide explaining about the exploitation of the mine and the history of the slaves, the mine is well preserved and maintained in your original state. Admission is R $25.00. Lasts on average some 40 min.

  • We went to this mine for indication of the Guide. Access is by narrow streets and steep, but very quiet. Getting there, has an explanatory lecture and if enters the mine with a guide. We came in about 150 m into the mine (which I considered enough to understand a part of the story). The guide explains in detail how was the exploitation of gold, and of the slaves who worked in the mine. The ride cost R $25 per person. We took our 2 year old daughter and she enjoyed the ride and don't get scared. Anyway, thanks a lot!
