Show you around and then they take you down into the mine. If you have any problems walking then don't go down into the mine. They have been digging here since 1549.

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

A pretty good experience, to learn about mining activities of the region, and learning some good stories, about the legends of the city

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.
