Le Porte del Parco Miniere Lagorai


Parco minerario di Calceranica
This Gate opens directly onto the entrance of the majestic pyrite mine which was active until 1964. The main gallery, with the sweet-sounding name Leyla, was once used for transporting the extracted material to the surface. A stone's throw from the town of Calceranica al Lago, it can be visited with expert guides, a helmet on the head and a raincoat. With the help of reconstructions and exhibitions of the Museum, it is an opportunity to retrace and relive the history of the mine and of the people who worked there. Visitors are free to follow the ancient path travelled by the miners from the villages of Vattaro and Bosentino that winds through the wild valley of the Mandola stream near the mine.
