Half Day Excursion - Mines of Gavà archaeological site

5 September

This is a network of galleries dedicated to the extraction of variscite, a semi-precious mineral that was used to make jewellery and ornaments in the Neolithic. It is considered the oldest mining complex in Europe and its study has disclosed valuable information about the work and everyday lives of the inhabitants of Gavà 6,000 years ago, as well as about the exchange and use of objects and raw materials during the Neolithic.
