The lost village of San Benedetto!

In the mountains above Iglesias, Sardegna, there is the lost village of San Benedetto.

San benedetto, Iglesias, Sardegna, mines
When the mines closed everything was just abandoned and left for nature to do its bit. But even today many remnants of the past still exist.

You can just imagine this train full of minerals tipping it’s load into the waiting trucks below.

The train lines are still intact but slowly there is less and less as people take bits and pieces for souvenirs, which is a shame.
