Is less popular than the valenciana one, but is totally amazing. If you are looking for a better experience with much less walking and stairs, this is the place. The tour guys are very well prepared and go deeper in the origins of mining i...More

The place is very charming and you can take great photos. The mine is just a cave you go down 60+ steps. Then you have a small explanation of how things work. You'll be out in less than an hour.

Similar to other mining visits, the explanation is conventional and the descent is more dangerous (due to the slippery surface) than illustrative of the working conditions of the miners. Outside there are the usual shops but all in all it is not an essential visit...More

This used to be a real silver mine. Now it's a museum/ mine. To go to the mine is fun but a way down not for closterfobic and people with high blood pressure.

This is a very short trip, about half an hour. I like that you can take pictures at the bottom of the mine with your hard hat. my mother in law enjoyed it.
