Description Mining landscapes, for being testimony of the human activity related to the exploitation of mineral resources, they frequently present heritage features. The traces of the past concentrated in such places, whether tangible or intangible, generate an increasing interest on their preservation and revaluation. In this work it is studied the mine of Amiantos, in the island of Cyprus, which due to its adverse impacts on the environment and human health causes rejection and abandonment. Through an analysis of its evolution and identifying its constitutive elements, it is aimed to rediscover the identity of this territory, a guiding thread that could recover the story of its past looking towards a new future.
Los paisajes mineros, al ser testimonio de la actividad humana vinculada con la explotación de los recursos minerales, presentan, frecuentemente, características patrimoniales. Las huellas del pasado acumuladas en dichos lugares, ya sean tangibles o intangibles, despiertan un creciente interés sobre la preservación y revaloración de los mismos. En este trabajo se estudia la mina de Amiantos, en la isla de Chipre, que por los efectos nocivos sobre el medio natural y a la salud humana provoca rechazo y abandono. A través de un análisis de su evolución e identificando sus elementos constitutivos, se pretende redescubrir la identidad de este territorio, un hilo conductor que pueda recoser el relato de su pasado mirando hacia un nuevo futuro.
