Mineral Country Park Gavorrano

The area around Monte Calvo near to Gavorano on the coast of Tuscany was heavily mined for pyrites in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The park incorporates many buildings once associated with mining which have been adapted to other purposes, and some open cast workings. The interpretation of mining is centre on an early twentieth century mine, where, after viewing an introductory audio-visual programme, visitors can enter the galleries and see reconstructed working scenes. The surface buildings, including the lamp room and the explosives store, can also be explored, and a trail provides guidance through the extensive dressing plant. An open air theatre, the Teatro delle Rocce, is another feature of the park.
