Mine of Sombras (Shadows Mine)

Lobios is one of the municipalities with high archaeological heritage of the province of Ourense, where we underline their old holdings of wolfram, the Mine of Sombras, at the source of the river Vilameá, whose activity ceased in the 70s of last century. It was during World War II one of the greatest sources of wealth of the municipality and has provided large amounts of wolfram to the Germans.

Currently it’s abandoned and its access is difficult. The road is unpaved and in poor condition. But at this place we still can find the ruins of buildings that belonged to these mines.
