Laveria Lamarmora

Abandoned laveria Lamarmora

The neo-medieval preparation plant of Lamarmora is spread over the coast of Masua in Sardinia.

The brick buildings on the border of the sea were built in 1895. Rocks from the Buggerru mine were transported down an inclined plane in wagons. Parallel to the stairs along which you descend, you still recognize the rails of the inclined plane.

In the preparation plant, the rock was broken to extract minerals such as lead and zinc. That is why chimneys and ovens surround the buildings. The ores were transported via a small port.

At its peak in the 1930s, hundreds of people worked here under the leaden sun. After their working day, they went up to the mining village of Nebida.

Production costs were already skyrocketing during the First World War. The mining crisis in the 70s and 80s was ultimately too much: Laveria Lamarmora closed its doors.

The ruins are now an empty box. The windows are long gone, and the wooden roofs are taken away. Improvised wooden scaffolding must keep the round-arched windows in line.
