Thanks to the collaboration of the guides of the tourist association ‘Caput Liberum’, we can offer you an afternoon visit to the Mines of Calamita, in the Vallone mining site, across the Innamorata Beach. Participants will have the chance to gather small samples of various minerals (calcite, pyrite, copper pyrite, garnet, ilvaite, etc.) as well as copper (malachite, plancheite, etc.) and iron (haematite, red and yellow ochre, etc.). Also included: a visit to the ‘Museum of the Old Workshop’ and tasting of the typical schiaccia briaca (a ‘drunken’ cake, made boozy with Alchermes and Aleatico, a local wine) of Capoliveri.
