Long Description:
Las minas son bastante profundas y en algunos puntos peligrosas, si decidis explorarlas tened precaución no lo hagais con niños.

Aunque las minas pertenecen a Pals algún reginconenc trabajó allí a las órdenes de "el abuelo rajoler", el apodo con que era conocido José Bofill Pericay, quien las explotaba.
De las minas, abandonadas a mediados de siglo XX, se extraía tierra oscura para hacer cántaros.
Disfrutad del aire fresquito que sale de la mina.

The mines. Also caaled “the black mines” are quite deep and in some places dangerous. Caution needed if you decide to explore it with children.

In the mid-twentieth century, from these now abandoned mines
