Pozzo Sella

Pozzo Sella, located inside the Monteponi site, was built between 1872 and 1874 to extract water that prevented the cultivation of minerals.

Over time, the remarkable exterior structure, with its distinctive architecture, was used to house the mine’s technological services, such as the mechanical workshop, forges, and carpentry.

Stopping at Pozzo Sella gives the chance to live a unique journey through time, bringing visitors back to the era of the mine’s full activity, giving the sensation that the miners only abandoned those places a few days before.

Guided tours of Monteponi and Pozzo Sella are organized by reservation only.
