    Usually, I write reviews impartial about and places visited by me; This time, if I give, I want to say a few words about something that they didn't give me a chance to see trying to get as much as possible. I read the reviews of those who had ' are lucky (I will not expire in the scurrilous), having trawled all the links online to learn more: from Sicily, connoisseur of their territory, admit my ignorance about this hidden treasure that intrigued, I try to see how to achieve it. As per suggestion found in their own web, I take the opportunity to contact them through Facebook and, invariably, they replied ... SPADES! "It's a mine still active ... blah blah ... AVAILABLE ONLY to EMPLOYEES at work ... blah blah ... Cathedral built by them for THEIR OWN USE ... blah blah ". Now, since I'm not an idiot but I admit even a slight margin of error (on my part), I would like to know one thing: all the reviews on TripAdvisor, were written only by "employers" (i.e. by miners of Realmonte)? So, from this very site, I would make sure better because they would be untrue reviews but for the sole purpose of propaganda brought forth by the same owners mine (for what purpose, then, seeing that it can only be accessed by those who work there??) Or, as someone wrote above, you can cross the threshold only if recommended and/or for sympathy (and, by my written requests, I don't I made right)?! To me, they didn't even hinted at "long waits, for years and years" as it is established, on the tour and one day per month: because I was given directly to veto? Clearly, I'm glad for the select few who have enjoyed such a possibility but, at the same time, I am saddened by all the "dupes" (yours truly included) who had thought of not requiring any Saint in heaven: every now and then, a thousand good things of my land, peeps that "I don't know what" for which, in the eyes of the world, we must always make amends!

    The full score is for the uniqueness of the place because to tell you the truth I've visited but having been in Realmonte a weekend I had already consulted tripadvisor regarding this site and reading the reviews honestly I didn't feel to visit a place that is 70 m of depth certainly is a site that deserves a visit so if you want to make this experience you must send an email to "Italkali" because mine is active and are employees who please accompany you during your visit. I recommend also to book well in advance. Well as for me I hope to one day visit

    I was speechless, a cathedral to 90 meters below ground made entirely from salt from floor to ceiling lights, beautiful sculptures. Outstanding. Unique. To see
