How is a visit to the mine?

The visit is a walking tour that begins in the middle of the surface facilities of the mine, to then access the first floor, located 35 meters deep, through the stairs of the old emergency exit of the mine.. Once inside, there is a journey of about 700 meters through different galleries during which you can appreciate the mineralogical wealth of the subsoil, the working techniques and the hard work of the miners. At the end of the visit, you return to the surface without having to climb stairs, since you go directly to the old terroir of the mine, and then walk back to the Museum facilities. The temperature inside the mine oscillates between 16-18º C throughout the year.
