My grandparents were gold miners. Even since I was a little, I loved to listen to their stories and legends about the surrounding mining galleries and to explore the area as much as I can. In this tour we will hike on the surrounding massifs to discover the old gold mining galleries. We will see the gold diggings marks that were made by the Romans 2000 years ago, then the galleries made by Hapsburg empire and the most recent ones like the open pits made during communism. We will talk about how they were make and how they manage to extract huge quantities of gold back in the time and why were they proposed to become an UNESCO site. As we will pass by the lakes we will talk about the huge water mills that they made in order to process the golden ore. Maybe we will find some gold...

I left my IT job from a big city to come back and develop the tourism in my native village. A mining corporation wants to start here a huge open pit, saying that gold mining is the only alternative. I believe this will destroy my area so I transformed my grandparents house in a touristic accommodation, started to gather info about the rich history of my village, found all the places worth visiting and started to accommodate and make guided tours. I also obtained a certification as a local guide. So I can wait to show you the surroundings and our rich history.
