  • Some friends told him us one day we looked bored, went hang out, and surprise, was a very educational and fun trip, especially for the more small, incredible having him so close and not know it. We discovered a nothing usual piece of the history of these lands.

  • There is usually no tourist resources in format mine, but in inland Castellón, between the municipalities of Culla and la Torre d' in Besora has been able to restore, rehabilitate or convert some old iron mines into tourist attraction. It is, as they have dubbed it a little bombastic way, of the mining Park of the Maestrazgo. And two mines, Victoria and hope/new hope are visited. The 500 meters between both through one of those trenecitos to diesel that has nothing to do with mine but that does not stop being a comfort. The visit to the inside of the mines is, with difference, it better. In fact I think it is a must-see to know how was the economy of the 20TH century in a rural mountain area. Mine are extracted four minerals, although the most wanted was iron, which was subsequently transported to the missing high furnaces of Sagunto for its transformation. The operation of the mines is wonderfully explained by guides (to us we had Amanda), which up to invite you to lift some of the mining machinery to check their weight. In short, although all are not crossed, mines have 4 kilometers long and fall quite meters below the surface. Explore the ancient galleries is really spectacular. In short, a visit must if you are in the area. That Yes, care because the mines are to 800 meters of altitude, in full sierra and, if blows the wind, the feeling thermal can be hard even in autumn or spring. There is a restaurant next to the mine with a smell of barbecued invites you to enter, although we can not test it. Attention also because mines visit lasts more than two hours.

  • Ideal to spend a morning whether you're going with children, or adults only. It is a mine very accessible for everyone and comfortable visit, what draws attention is the detailed explanation of every corner and work an enormous hardness and the impact he had in the surrounding area. I went from Valencia and to my understand is worth very much the penalty visit it and know the environment, is an of them attractions unknown and that not this crowded, the train it used to carry you and collect you of a mine to another, the visit hard 1.30 minutes approximately. Then left me to eat in the restaurant which is right on the side, which you have to book, I believe than the menu cost around 13 euros, I said big thing, if you do not want to eat, then you better look, you book, take warm clothes to visit the mine, inside there are about 15 °.
