Mina Chiflón del Diablo
Mina Chiflón del Diablo information
The Mina Chiflón del Diablo is a naturally ventilated undersea mine that operated between 1884 and 1976. Ex-coal miners now work as guides on well-organized 45-minute tours that take you through a series of galleries and tunnels to a coal face some 50m under the sea.
Before clambering into the rattling metal cage-elevator that takes you down, you’re kitted out with safety gear. You can also visit the Pueblito Minero, painstaking re-creations of typical miners’ houses built for the Chilean movie Sub Terra (Underground), which was filmed here.
