Overview

The Acosta Mine starts working in 1727 and keeps its productivity until 1985. Nowadays it has became in an important Museum where you can know about its History and relevant acpects about mining. The Site guards historic architectural remains, testimony of its Historical stages: Colony, english immigration and investment in the region, starting with the Age of Steam and the advent of electricity with the Northamerican investors. You will also visit the inside of a tunnel where you'll be able to see a Silver vein after a historical tour about mining work.

We thoroughly enjoyed this museum which provided a lot of contest to the mining industry throughout history in the region. Very well maintained. Our guide was very knowledgeable and we were able to ask many questions. Well done!

Very worth a visit, as you usually get an actual miner(retired) to explain you every aspect of the miner life. Including histories of how it went trough the years. From the old Spanish style mining to the newer more modern English/American style with electricity and...More

this was the Acosta mine and is now a miner museum. It is a very beautiful place and affordable (around 2USD).
