To the Ginevro mines by bike with a visit inside

Into the Mine
We will venture inside the ancient Ginevro mine on the first level.
Level: EASY




The epilogue will be the Minere del Ginevro, the only mine in Elba where an internal excavation was undertaken through tunnels starting from +6 meters and reaching up to -54m. Thanks to the official guides of the mines, we will enter the mines equipped with a helmet and a torch (the entrance to the claustrophobic is not recommended!). The mines were in operation from 1971 to 1981 and was one of the most modern mines in Europe, built with very innovative criteria for the time. At the time of the interruption of the extraction activity, only 1/3 of the field had been exploited, although in the depths there is still a lot of iron, available up to 250 meters below sea level.
Worthy of note is the Magnetic Festival, a musical event that takes place in the summer, dedicated to musical art in every expression: operetta, lyric, classical and baroque music ... all within the quarry!
