Active Mine - Potosi Half Day

The mines visited are located at the base of the historical Rich Hill of Potosi. Inside, appreciate the system of miners´ work that has not suffered great changes after so much time of exploitation.

Touring the different galleries and interior levels of the mines, visitors can meet some places where the miners built statues that represent to their gods as The Uncle of the Mine (the devil). Visitors also can see the mineral veins that are a group of rocks and chemical formations of minerals, chimneys, apart from having an experiential sharing time with the miners and observing the different work methods that they carry out every day.
