The historic site of a copper mine that is now abandoned. It sits on a cliff overlooking the sea and makes for a great photography location. The area is also used by the locals for fishing but visitors should be careful because the seas in this area are very rough it is not advised to enter the water. You can however collect some of of the naturally occuring copper which makes a great souvenir.
Lots of minerals in rocks to look at. Great view. Nice piece of history. Loved it!!!
