Arditurri Mine

The mining galleries of Arditurri are one of the few which have been worked continuously for 2000 years. At present times, the surroundings of the mining land have been reclaimed ??, after more than 20 years of inactivity since the Real Compañía Asturiana de Minas gave up working the wealthy mines of Arditurri in 1984.

This galleries are open to the public and can be visited. This visit to the heart of the mines is seen as a journey through time engaging the mind, the senses and the emotions where the visitor will be transported through the different periods of the history of the mines.

Two types of visit are organised; one ‘standard’ visit and another one known as ‘mine in depth’. The first includes a visit to the Interpretation Centre-Parketxe and to the mining gallery (a walk of 180 m) while the second includes in additiona tothe walk of 180 m at first level, a walk of 500 m at a lower level.
