Just 10 minutes from the scenic city center, Mina El Eden, serves as one of the most important sites of the colonial history of the mining town. The mine operated from the late 16th century until 1960; then it was reopened as an attraction in 1975. Step back in time as a train takes you to the center of the underground mining site, where you can see where the gold and silver ore was extracted. You'll see an array of minerals in the museum. A nightclub now operates in the former grinding vault of the mine, which you can access by riding the small train 610 m (2,000 ft) underground.
