  • I had to go with my family makes a year, arrive in truck and found parking on one side of the temple which is very close to the mine, in front of the temple there is a small square where several had put food, which should mention that they do not sell as cheap as d eberian as street stalls, this sumale people as it gives laziness littering in place and therefore the square was quite dirty. Returning to the mine, is located one block from the temple, on the road several positions of memories for all budgets, from small stones from $5 up to arrays of more than $1500, to re-enter the mine arrive in an anteroom with a few models of mine at different epo CAs and a guide will be explaining you each, which I found quite interesting, after that you enter the mouth of the mine and you start to descend, it should be noted that if have already great age will be quite difficult for them travel , also if you have young children or in arms, since the stairs are quite rustic and somewhat dangerous. I think the journey through what charge is pretty good, well explained and they give you a few minutes to take the photo at the bottom of the same, leaving mine there is a souvenir shop in which give you a different small stones bag , in conclusion, highly recommended, although a bit far from the center of the city

  • Valenciana area, now still being unearthed mines are there, this is a place that opened up the old mine. Put the helmet on the brink do mine was going down to the bottom and that include deep emotion and old miners who dug by humans so far.

  • Enjoyed our tour of the mines. A few things were hard to understand despite being a native Spanish speaker. They did a great job detailing the history of the mines and the work conditions of the miner...  more »

  • Interesting, but not a must-see if you don't have much time or not interested in taking a taxi so far out. Not very deep, and you don't see much, but the guide's stories are interesting, and it's a short, manageable tour. If you're interested in the mines in this area, this is the only one worth seeing. Don't go to any of the others! Those are tiny in comparison, just holes in the ground.
  • What people say about having to tip the guide is true. There's no way not because one feels awful watching older men walk down and up so many flights of stairs. Most of the experience is stairs. Learning how the indigenous mined is a horrendous reality dose. Depressing.
  • This is one of the inactive entrances to an active mine. There are stairs so you can go 60m below surface. Not adequate for claustrophobic people. There's a part in the tour when the lights are turned off to demonstrate how it was before mining technology. Very interesting place.
  • You get the chance to go 150 meters underground. The story about how people used to work there is amazing. Even people who are not sporty can take the tour without much trouble. It is a bit demanding going up though.
  • Interesting tour of the mine shaft. Going down the stairs is easy, going up is when the challenge begins.
