Cala dell’Argentiera looks out onto an evocative scenery of manufacturing archaeology, formed by the Argentiera mine buildings, which over the centuries exploited the area for its rich lead, silver and zinc deposits. The mining village, closed in 1962, further amplifies the motionless atmosphere where time stands still, of this beautiful cove, that makes the shape of an arc covered by a mixture of sand, gravel and mineral dusts. The sea is extraordinarily limpid and crystalline: the light bouncing of its surface contrasts with the brown rocks that flank the beach producing a spectacular chromatic show.
