explored the abandoned silver mining village #argentiera in the north-west of sardinia a few days ago.
the mine was used for hundreds of years, extensively in the time of the industrial age until it got shut down in 1963.
parts of the village are now in the process of refurbishment for touristic purposes and to keep the heritage of this extraordinary industrial archaeology.
we came in the middle of the day and there were not many people around, mostly construction workers. in the summertime it can get more crowded because of the nearby beach.
