  • If you are looking for a real visit to the mine, Monteponi is the right choice. In addition to showing the redeveloped was destined to the services (schools, post office, garage, lodge etc.) you can see the castle of the well was visited by Pope John Paul II. But the best part is walking into the tunnel, entirely carved into the mountain and which still preserves the machinery in use until the late 90 's and in good condition. The visit underscores both the suffering and the working conditions of the miners but also the considerable technological progress and the primacy jndustriale in the field that there was at the time. The guide was engaging and prepared. The tour lasts about an hour ... only downside is that you have to book in advance. Site in my opinion very important ... If possible to upgrade.

  • The mine is now idle for long but the site retains a charm romantically decadent and neighboring village, with its rationalist architecture recalls the many ideal cities of Foundation of the Fascist era. Unfortunately the industrial archaeological site is inaccessible and is left pretty much in ruins although the Tourist Office of Iglesias and society Igea organize guided tours, for which one must ask in advance days and visiting hours. Like all mining areas of the iglesiente in need of enhancement and safety measures. However impressive from outside the gates.

  • Additions on this site, passing through lush vegetation and then find yourself suddenly slammed on the set of a film that tells of the assault and destruction of Stalingrad. Then you find out that this was one of the most important mines in Europe and its history began in the second half of the 19th century. A truly unique place.
