During the day they have tours of the mine which are so fun and at night they have a dance club!! We weren't able to go back for the club but it's on my bucket list for sure.

It is interesting the way mines worked in the 16th century. The rock museum is nice. The guided tour is very funny and entertained (not sure if there are in English).
