This place actually relayed the history of the mine. It was enjoyable. They take you down to the mine while explaining the history of it and the modernization of the mining techniques. The guide really seemed interested in the material and worked for decades with the mine.

You can see two mines in the same area, this one and San Cayetano. When we arrived it was pouring rain so we had to wait to enter the mine. We basically had a private tour since there was no one else due to the rain. The price for the entrance is very inexpensive. Expect to walk a lot of steps up and down, so this is not for the handicapped. The tour guide will expect a small tip at the end of your tour which last about 45 minutes.

There are a few mines in Guanajuato open to the public. This one is one of them. From the outside, it is an impressive colonial building with a beautiful garden. The main attraction, the mine, feels so fake. Yes, that was an actual mine back in the day and one goes inside kinda the same way miners did for centuries. However, in an effort to make it tourist safe, they actually made it look and feel fake inside. Not worth paying for the tour. There's very little that makes it stand out .

Also, outside, there's a very cool looking bar. See picture. That's might have been the best part of the visit. Unfortunately, it wasn't open because the bar tender didn't go to work that day. Hopefully you will have better luck.

It was part of a tour we took and definitely a good addition to it. Good for taking pictures and the tour guide was very informative.

Is less popular than the valenciana one, but is totally amazing. If you are looking for a better experience with much less walking and stairs, this is the place. The tour guys are very well prepared and go deeper in the origins of mining i this area of Mexico. greta bar where you can refresh and indulge your self.

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.

Visited Bocamina San Ramon. Boca is mouth of, in this case a mine. Cost 45P each to enter. You can actually go down into this mine tunnel. Miners only lived 10 years as they were exposed to mercury and other toxic chemicals along with the mine dust. Each miner expected to carry out several 70 kilo baskets of ore a day. Many signs and displays describe the lives of the miners. This venue also used for special events throughout the year.
