Minas do Lousal / Lousal mines









Não tão exuberantes como as minas de São Domingos, mas muito muito interessantes.

Os lagos ácidos continuam a ser uma coisa que me fascina e me impressiona (pela negativa) ao mesmo tempo.



Not as exuberating as the São Domingos mines, but still very very interesting.


The acid lakes are still something that fascinate and also impress me (in the negative sense) at the same time.

  1. Is it an abandoned mine? And are the lakes very acidic? It is strangely fascinating...

    1. Hi Vita! The mine is not abandoned however it's not been used - it has a science and a mine museum and you can visit it. The lakes are very acid yes and unfortunately this happens quite often when the mines stop working. it is quite bad for the environment and there is not a lot they can do. These are contaminated soils still is quite impressive to watch nature gain its place since there are still some plants growing around.

      Stay well (:
