Mines of Montevecchio
Since prehistorical times mining has been one of the main industries in Sardinia. The Anglo-Sarda mine (Sant'Antonio) at Montevecchio has been transformed into a museum and the first level can be visited with an expert guide, one of the miners that worked there. It is the mine where my father in law has worked in his youth. At the heart of the district the building of the directors of the mines. There is also a small geological museum in the former hospital.
