Yes you heard right, there are mines on Ibiza. Toby, the founder of Walking Ibiza, leads the walk and will show you the ancient silver mines which have been mined for 1000’s of years and were only finally abandoned in the 1950’s.
We visit the very ancient Phoenician mines and also the more modern deep shaft mines where you can peer down the deep shafts. Its a strange site which used to employ 100’s of people in terrible conditions deep underground, the above ground buildings with chimneys are still standing. The area around the mines is wonderful woodland which we will be walking though and enjoying.
After the walk we would like to have lunch at Las Dalias. Please let us know by sending an email to email@example.com if you would like to join, so Toby can make the reservation in advance.
