Minas del Cardenillo (Cardenillo mine)

The copper deposits’ leachate beautifies the walls by adding a cardenillo (verdigris) colour. The stairs, the well and the skylight lighting up the interior are all vestiges of the mine’s exploitation during the Roman Republican period towards the 2nd and 1st centuries BCE.
