Get your torch ready and enter the Tresminas Mines, the largest gold deposit in the Roman Empire. You'll also visit the Pedras Salgadas park and its futuristic eco-lodges.
Tresminas Mines + Pedras Salgadas Day Trip
At the selected time, we'll pick you up from your hotel in Boticas and set off for Tresminas, where we'll arrive after an hour and a half.
We'll go into the caves of the Tresminas Archaeological Park, a gold mine discovered during the time of Emperor Augustus. Do you know why these mines were so important? We'll find out!
This complex was used to extract this valuable mineral until the 3rd century, being the largest gold deposit in the Roman Empire until then. It's made up of a series of tunnels and caves that we'll go through as we learn about the history of these mines. During the tour, we'll also be able to see the bats that live in the caves.
We'll leave the mines and go to the Tresminas Interpretation Centre to learn more about the complex and its cultural value by walking through its exhibition rooms and observing objects that have been found in the caves.
The last part of the tour will consist of a walk through Pedras Salgadas. In this natural space of over 40 hectares we'll see its plants and curious ecological houses of futuristic style, which are part of the hotel complex of the park.
After four hours of walking, we'll finally return to Boticas and leave you at your hotel.
