COSTA ALMERIA NEWS: Pulpi giant geode attracts 40,000 visitors in six months

PULPI’S giant geode has attracted nearly 40,000 visitors since the mine housing the geological phenomenon was opened up to the public at the beginning of last August.
The interest in seeing one of the biggest gypsum crystals in the world up close has attracted an average of some 6,000 people a month to don hard hats and join a guided tour of the Mina Rica in the Pilar de Jaravia area.
The mine is set to be temporarily closed later this month, reportedly until the beginning of April, while a lift is installed to improve accessibility to the site.
