The history of one of the largest mining villages in Sardinia, the Miniera di Ingurtosu e Gennamari, starts in the second half of the 19th century, in the village of Ingurtosu. Here the workers did win zinc, lead and silver on a large scale.
Ruins of an ore-processing factory: the mines of the region closed, people were discharged, and the place fell into disrepair.
The former administration house of the Ingurtosu mine company. Today, it is a place of residence. The families of the miners lived well, the "delle società Civile di Gennamari miniere e Ingurtosu" nurtured good 5,000 people. Most of the men worked in the mines of Ingortosu and Gennamari.
Remains of the village: after the mining workers of Ingurtosu left their village in the beginning of the sixties, the villages fell into disrepair over the decades
