  • A great place! This previously deserted mine had been refurbished and airconditioned. A visit (always guided) gives you a very good idea of how life was for the miners and of what this industry meant for the region. Our guide was great. And the train ride up the hill was a big plus too. Do go there! It's next to the Feve train station and there's a big parking lot too.
  • An amazing experience, I recommend it to visitors to the area, both adults and children. The tours are well organised and very interesting. A land train takes you high up the hills to the mine entrance where there's a set of steep steps to climb (about 20 steps) and after that your'e taken into the mine itself which is quite spectacular at times and is easy to walk in. Tours are available in English and our guide (David) was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. You also get to "blow up" a seam once you're inside if you want to. I think it's a "must see" and look forward to going again.
  • Fantastic tour! Good way to see in conditions that were working in the mines. They are well looked after mine and the guide that we had super good! For nothing claustrophobia. First projected an interesting video to understand the history of the area, then gets on a train because the slopes are pronounced, to the mine gate vicenta dan helmets, it enters the mine 40 minutes and then stops at the bar in front of the mine before dropping again by train. I would like that they condition the other mines since I find it very interesting.

  • First, indicate that it is necessary to call and book in advance, as weekends tend to fill all the vacancies. In the environment, we can see the remains of buildings and machinery used in the process of separation and metal smelting. During the visit enjoyable way explains the use of elements, and you can even see in the background of the landscape, after the town of La Union, Cerro Rajao, explaining it started as ancient Roman silver mine. The visit begins with a bus you climbing up to the entrance of the mine. Once if you get helmets and begins the visit inside. Guide will explain, very pleasant way, the extraction process, conditions of work and everything related to mining in the area yen that mine in particular. Good experience, ideal for curious and families who want to know a mine in an excellent condition. The visit takes approx. 2 hours and a half.
