We strolled in the abandoned mines. Good shoes required, the area is full of colorful earth and deposites from the mines. The colors are amazing. We stayed on the paths there, as other visitors also advised. It is worth a visit!

I found this an interesting place to spend and hour or so walking around. The colours of the stained rocks and fascinating and it has some nice views too. It's definitely work a visit if you're in the area.
