On the second day of our trip through La Paz, we were waiting for a good combination of history, cultural heritage, nature, gastronomy and adrenaline. Come on, one of those days in which you touch all the slopes that make a trip great.

La Jayona Mine

La Jayona Mine

A splendid sun - atypical of early December - accompanied us on our journey from Llerena to La Jayona mine, located about 4.5 km south of the small town Fuente del Arco.

The history of this mine is really curious. If it is a cleared and arid place during the years of its mining exploitation (during the first half of the 20th century), it has become, today, a important natural monument (officially declared as such in 1997), as well as historical.

In its caves you can find a large number of different species of bats, highlighting the horseshoe.
