Parys Mountain

Parys Mountain is the site of an enormous 18th-century copper mine, though the first signs of copper extraction here date back around 4,000 years. The mine was the largest in Europe during the 1780s and dominated the global market.

Soil contamination means little life survives on the mountain and creates a surreal, almost-Martian landscape where rare plants can flourish.
