A church way deep in the mine!

It appears that these mines were not just a work place. Some 400 feet below the surface, in one of the large chambers in the mine, a whole church has been built out. With some intricate carvings of Biblical scenes on the wall. I understand three artists completed this over 64 years or so.

Every Sunday, there is a mass here! Weddings are regularly held here. And you thought mining is the pits!!

I asked the guide – “So, you make the bride walk down all these steps in her high heels to get married?”

All future brides would be relieved to hear that they have a special elevator for that purpose!!
