Took local bus from Guanajuato and visited firstly the church and just behind the mine. Our guide was a student who was so enthusiastic. A very interesting trip - 35 pesos for entry plus a tip - would very much recommend.

if you've seen mines in the area before, it's not an absolute must. but the tour is fine, the mine very busy with tours, and involves steep climbs so be prepared.

Great Experience, you get the feeling of what was like to work in a Colonial era mine, highly reccommended for adventurous people, kind of creepy experience, not reccommended for claustrophobics.

If you like minning and stones, you will love the visit, if you don't even is a nice stop for most city tours where you can buy some beautiful stones as souvenirs.

Mine? What mine?? All you see is some old equipment and a few old stone structures. Most of the site is dedicated to selling tourists food and knick knacks.
