Reviews

Great trip! Long way, lot of mining gear to watch. You can see some tools working. Everything well prepared and explained. Definitely must see for tech lovers.
It is also a very educational tour. You go up to 320 metres below ground. It does not feel deep though. You walk through many passages and learn how they support the roof.
Moreover. there is this interesting silver mine and Unesco heritage for water management. Nice tour with a hard hat that you really need when you need to lower your head for very low ceilings.

Noah
I strongly recommend visiting this mine. We had amazing guides. They were extraordinary, who kept our minds all day. We had a great time, laughing enjoying seeing the mining process.
Safety is number 1 priority here. For claustrophobic people: there are a couple of very tight spaces (especially the elevator).
