This is a must see in the city. You get to see how silver was brought up plus you get to go down into the mine.

The mine is interesting to see, but not having enough Spanish to understand the guide's explanations was a definite disadvantage. There are few fluent English speakers here, but we did find one to take us on the city tour. Augustino was excellent in English.

A world within a world. Gardens of every type, and stately villa. History buffs heaven. At least a two hour visit, and there's a little drink bar to help you out when you get tired and thirsty. Worth the time.
