CAVE DE PREDIL, ITALY: On our last day in Slovenia we drove over the pass back to Italy and to Cave de Predil. Surprisingly there was a mine to visit which was also open that day. Until the nineties lead and zinc was mined there, but today the mine is closed and can be visited. On the way back we passed some fortress buildings. Some of them were visibly over 100 -200 years old and were hardly accessible.
