|Cianciana, Things to do: Grotticelli and Falconera Mines.|
|Scritto da Paolo Sanzeri|
In a rather recent past, the Grotticelli and Falconera mines were the richest sulphur mines of Cianciana that, like other towns of the Mining District, based a good part of its economy on this mining wealth.
These mines, abandoned about 50 years ago, are very interesting sites for the recovery of remains belonging to the industrial life of the past century, a source of historical memory and identity for the citizens of Cianciana.
Today, it is still possible to see the traces of the structures used to extract the sulphur.
