Ingurtosu, with Montevecchio and Monteponi, has been one of the most important mining reality of the island. The several yards of Ingurtosu mined the middle part of the long Montevecchio vein. The map illustrates into details the areas of the mine of Ingurtosu. With the neighboring mine of Gennamari Ingurtosu formed a single complex.
To arrive at Ingurtosu is very simple. You have two possibility: you can arrive at the mining village by following a comfortable paved road that crosses the National Road n° 126 between the kilometers 76 and 77 (the direction is well signalled, you can't miss it); or you can choose the dirt road that connects Montevecchio and Ingurtosu. The road bed could be in not perfect conditions (specially after abundant rains), but usually the road is practicable with a normal car.
