Regarded as one of our country's most relevant and unique heritage sites, mining began 6,000 years ago and subsisted for roughly one thousand years. Aside from their remote age, it is important to mention that these coetaneous mines are immensely complex structures and the only ones used to extract variscite, a decorative mineral held in great esteem.

The Archaeological Park, created to help preserve and enhance awareness of this exceptional mining site, provides a unique experience in which the mining structures coexist with a modern museum display. Here, visitors can capture the site's immensity and come to comprehend the life system and beliefs of our ancestors via advanced audiovisual and multimedia technology.

A sizeable portion of the original artefacts are on display in the Gavà Museum.
