Mina de São Domingos

Mining complex installed in the 19th century for the operation of a pyrite mine cuprífera whose deposit was explored as early as Roman and pre-Roman. The main elements extracted during the modern exploration, between 1854 and 1966, were the copper and sulfur. After the closure of the mine equipment was dismantled and sold, leaving today the landscape marked by mining activity and acidic drainage.
