Humberstone | Building in the historic mining town
The former saltpetre mine of Humberstone (in operation until 1961) has been abandoned and the associated settlement is a ghost town. However, the place has been declared a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site together with the nearby site of Santa Laura and is open to visitors.
