This place blew my mind, the tour was fantastic, very interesting and the sculptures within the mine are unreal. The cathedral is out of this world so beautiful. It’s easy to get too, we got a taxi which worked out at about £5. Be prepared...More

An interesting place to spend a couple of hours. I recommend going with a tour guide, as they provide lots of additional information along the way. You need to go down lots of steps at the beginning but there is a lift to come back...More
