  • First Sunday of September, my 6 year old son and my husband went in for this wonderful trip Gorno Ecomuseum of Gorno and old mines of Costa Jels. All very well organized you pay € 8 adults for a guided tour with explanations to the Museum for about an hour and then moving the machine (10 minutes drive) to the mines. The guides are all volunteers with an overwhelming passion, some are children or relatives of miners. Inside the mines, the temperature is about 8/10 degrees with a humidity of 80% cover because it's chilly, Board boots or sneakers, the path is quite long but not hard it is so interesting that wouldn't quit. At the end of the trail offer a good hot tea or coffee with biscuits. We also had the pleasure of speaking with a gentleman who worked in the mines as a young man and asked him so many things, we were enthralled by the stories and we brought home lots of emotions. I congratulate all volunteers because they are great! I would recommend this tour to everyone young and old to realize the life that carried miners and to enjoy the beauty of our mountains.

  • Gloomy day, what better way to hide in a cave, although artificial, rather than in a mall, which has so much to explode. Company trip with children and another family, but in the parking lot of other meeting 30 people; so let's start with pay (euro 8 adults), children free, if small and enter the mining museum where attendants, they explain the history, tools and illustrations that characterized the work in the mines in a truly competent, then we conclude the tour with two vintage footage, which showed the real working conditions. Then everyone in the car to the entrance of the mine in about 10 minutes and in small groups we enter for visiting (important the internal temperature is always 8-10 degrees cover). What is certain is that live view tools, the work accomplished, along with explanations of how this took place, leaving only partially perceive how tough was this craft, as well as the dangers attached to it, listen in this context the emphatic terms of the miner, soft light with carbide lamps, more impressive than the imagination. Thanks to the guides who have managed to involve both children and adults, answering questions competently and that they didn't know the history of the miner Vahdani ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... .... If you want to know all you have to do is go to Day.

  • I admit I'm biased, being the son of someone in those mines worked; but to see the passion of the explanations of the guides of the Museum, see a culture objects nearby, but it passed and then enter into the bowels of the Earth and breathe fresh air and pure knowing you have hundreds of Rock meter all around is a unique experience. How exciting to the end of the path running through the tunnel to find sunlight. Not to be missed.
