Tresminas and Pedras Salgadas Tour
We'll pick you up from your hotel in Chaves at the time you choose to go to the Tresminas mining complex, which is about 50 minutes away.
We'll arrive at the Tresminas Archaeological Park and head to the Roman-era gold mines. Everything ready for expedition? Lanterns, helmets... Let's go!
This mining complex was the largest gold mine in the Roman Empire until the 3rd century. It consists of a system of galleries that we'll explore as we learn about the importance of this place, especially during the reign of Emperor Augustus.
After studying the mines, we'll go to the Tresminas Interpretation Centre to learn about the past and present of this mining complex and the cultural and tourist value it has today.
Afterwards, we'll go to Pedras Salgadas, a haven of peace well known for its thermal baths. The park also has an ecological housing resort with curious futuristic designs, you'll love this contrast between nature and modernity!
