If you are fond of mineralogy or want to feel what it is to be a miner for a day, using a geologist's hammer or simply with your hands through a screening, you will extract the pyrites that so generously appear on our farm.
Experiencing the sensation of being transported to another world, you will not be able to stop, for something they call it the gold of the madmen, because the abundance of this mineral in our exploitation is spectacular.

Do not hesitate to contact us and take a tour of this place so close and at the same time so forgotten about our land.
