The Little Mine

Porto Azzurro
loc. Pianetto

The Little Mine has been faithfully rebuilt by an ex Elban miner, Emilio Giacomelli, and it goes in 250m through a fascinating underground itinerary: a faithful copy of an antique Elban mine, with grottos embellished with stalactites and stalagmites, carts and equipment that was once used in mining activity.

On board a small train you can make a trip through the galleries and see important stages of life in a mine, from the various phases of extraction to final products seen in the large variety of minerals exhibited.

In rooms built near the Little Mine there is an exhibition of typical Elban minerals and a workshop where you can help in working the lathe and transform raw material.

The small lake of Terranera is coloured yellow by sulphur, it is only a few kilometres from Porto Azzurro and is fed by a spring of fresh water and separated from the sea by a narrow strip of land, the lake is in an old pyrite mining area making a fascinating scenario.

Getting there: Take the main road from Porto Azzurro to Rio Marina, after about one kilometre you get to Località Pianetto.
