It's been over 50 years since miners last emerged from the old tin and tungsten mines of Barco-Covilhã. By burrowing down into the mountains on this guided tour, you're descending into history.

Wander through the mining galleries and admire the tools of a forgotten trade, as if they were simply laid down and abandoned decades ago. Learn about the site's geology, with your guide pointing out interesting subterranean features.

Out in the fresh air, the area around the mines is a thriving natural oasis that's prime for exploring!
