Brassey works

The Brassey works

The imposing structure of Brassey works (Ingurtosu – Arbus) was built at the end of 1800, to process minerals extracted from the exploitation of a new blende ore found in Naracauli.
The magnificent structure, showing valuable architectural features and a refined style, carried on its activity (even though in alternate stages) until the end of last century’s '60s. Notwithstanding its current state, almost reduced to a ruin, the site is still extraordinarily amazing, being immersed into the silence of the surrounding vegetation, in an almost surreal atmosphere.
