We strolled in the abandoned mines. Good shoes required, the area is full of colorful earth and deposites from the mines. The colors are amazing. We stayed on the paths there, as other visitors also advised. It is worth a visit!

I found this an interesting place to spend and hour or so walking around. The colours of the stained rocks and fascinating and it has some nice views too. It's definitely work a visit if you're in the area.

They have mined this area since Roman times, looking for gold, silver, copper and the main elements, allum, which is used in the making of cosmetics. Best to go with a guide from the Tourist Office as they can point out the various buildings. You...More
