A journey to the centre of the earth to see how the miners of yesteryear worked.

A maze of galleries that still echo to the hard labour of the miners and horses who toiled here to extract precious asphalt from the mountain. Don your helmet and keep hold of your torch as you plunge into the history of this mining operation. And then savour a local speciality: ham cooked in asphalt!
