This park is located 3 kilometres from the town of La Torre d’En Besora and 8 kilometres from the town of Culla. There are two tunnels that can be visited, which correspond to the old Victoria mines, in the municipality of Culla & Esperanza, and in the municipality of La Torre d’En Besora with some 2 km that can be visited. Both have been adapted to be visited and provided with audiovisual and display elements to facilitate visitors’ understanding. All visits are undertaken with a guide, who gives the relevant explications and guides visitors around the inside of the tunnels.
The guided tour lasts around 2 hours and includes visits to the two mines: Victoria and Esperanza. The outside visit is undertaken with a mining train which links both mine entrances, whilst the inside visit is on foot, walking along the tunnels. The insides of the tunnels have audiovisual material, holograms and tools from the time period, which will take you back in time to the splendour of the mines- you’ll feel just like a miner.
