It is quite a late answer, sorry.
Often I say to myself that I should be more active in this forum, but  ....

Yes, I found very nice minerals in the past: galenite, siderite, millerite with annabergite, coloured stalagtites ...

I have been in this region in spring 2022 again.
Interestingly there is a gallery belonging to the Mina Regia that is still accessible.
We didn't explore it entirely. there was some galenite, not many other things. But you have access to the main shaft.

Spain, Catalonia, Bellmunt del Priorat

Hi,
I have been in Bellmunt del Priorat, a short time ago.
This is (or was ) a very interesting Pb mine region not too far from Tarragona, I had visited several times, the last time about 10 years ago. To my astonishment many mines (mostly shafts) looked as I had left them a long time ago. And the biggest mine, Mina Eugenia, is now a mine museum. So I visited as a tourist the underground I had prospected a long time ago, looking for minerals. Quite a strange feeling!
