  • In a couple of hours, we toured the old dam, the mirador de San Gregorio mine and the boca-minas which are pens along the stream by the East exit of the city. Highly recommended ride, this relatively near the city of Rivera and a few kms from offset if is this pass the route 5. Mine lacks a bit of care and maintenance both the dam and the mouth, but it is something unique and very easy to access and quick to learn.

  • I was up all night to see the ruins but passing by the road I found the road. Leaving the main road we need to take a road of approximately 25 km of land.

  • To reach the ruins of the defunct plant must follow the route 5. Is 85 km from Rivera and the on-site visit lasts about 1 hour. Is an interesting place, but there is no guide. Maybe that's why the graffiti have been taking care of the place. If you follow the route 29 for another 12 km you will arrive in the town of Minas de Corrales. There's not much to do there. There is a viewpoint from where you can view the mining company in operation (needs permission to join in the mines) and two old tunnels (mouth of mine), and you can get in one of them.
