Miniera Torgola

There are indications that this complex was put into operation around the 15th century. Until the middle of the 19th century, it was only iron that was mined.

Sometime in the 19th century, the company switched from iron to fluorite mining. In the 1950s, the company underwent another major expansion, due to the enormous demand for fluorite.

The company peaked in 1960 and closed its doors in 1999. The building is dangerous, literally, everything is rotten. The stairs and floors, the roof, everything.

We spent a few hours here. Outside we found the mine shaft which we went into of course. It was mainly an interesting exploration, I didn’t take many pictures here.
