In the underground mine, more than 700 m deep, a space has been recuperated for public visit with maximum safety guarantee.
The accessible area is the 1st floor of the Almadén mine, about 50 metres deep, with the greatest historical value. After visiting exploitation areas from the 17th, 18th centuries (branch drifts, overhead stopes, open pits and bench exploitations) and work from the 20th century, visitors reach the visit's jewel: the baritel of San Andrés, with its majestic hoist, the Sistine Chapel of mining heritage, and the prisoner gallery where the criminals were led to work in the mine from the prison. Afterward, once again through the San Teodoro well, we access an upper gallery where a mining train transports the group to the surface.
