The mine of Montevecchio

Costa Verde is on the south-western coast of Sardinia, in the territory of Arbus, which is a village that shares with Guspini some of the most interesting mining areas in Europe. From these mines, with Monteponi and Buggerru, came 10% of the world’s production of lead and zinc. For this reason Grand Tours are organized (which are becoming more and more popular) in order to admire the remains of a civilization, the mine civilization, which seems bound to disappear forever.
Montevecchio, Ingurtosu, Funtanazza, Piscinas, Naracauli, Scivu and Pistis are the stages of a tour that every year enchants thousands of visitors from various countries in Europe who are searching for an experience that it is hard to find elsewhere.
In Costa Verde nature offers some sensations that are hard to forget. There is Scivu, a long deserted beach with neither houses nor hotels, which has been preserved thanks to the presence of a nearby prison.
