Miniera - Museo Grua va Hardömbl #1

With its entrance at 1,700 metres above sea level, the Grua va Hardombl mine, excavated for pyrite, blende, chalcopyrite, galena and gold played an important role in the area's economy. It has been currently secured and refurbished in order to recreate its original settings. The excavations indoors and the various extraction techniques as they evolved over time are the mine's highlights. It is located near the path leading to Lake Erdemolo and is 5 km from downtown Palù del Fersina.
Val del Fersina valley was known for its mines already in prehistoric times, although the period in which the mining activities reached their peak was the 16th century. The miners - called "canopi" - and the owners were German, and the taxes to be paid were equally shared by the Bishops of Trento and the Counts of Tyrol. Once the veins were exhausted and more profitable mines were discovered, the activity in this mine soon ground to a halt.
