A JUMP INTO THE UNDERGROUND

The mine sites testify the history of our territory, some of them have become sites of tourist and cultural interest  where you can experience the workers life and the historical values of the sites by visiting the tunnels leading to the bowels of the earth.

It was the hardest work on earth, all the man and women who have been there are left with a mark.

Nowadays a group of institutions (Minicipalities, Geo-Mineral Park, etc.) tray to increase the value of these post-industrial assets.

The underground is also made of fascinating natural caves, due to the calcareus terrain the water dug and shaped the rock creating marvellous hidden places.
