Museu de les Mines de Bellmunt del Priorat

Time Out says

We associate Priorat with vines and wines, and perhaps with olive oil. But its inhabitants have had other ways of making a living, such as working in the mines at Bellmunt, where galena was mined to be transformed into lead. The mine was still working until 1972, and nowadays you can visit one of its 20 subterranean galleries, which lies some 35 metres underground.
