The first written mention of Allsaints Mine in Hodrusa comes from 1378; however, it is likely to be more than 700 years old. It is a place where Hodruša mining started. Gold and silver ore had been exploited in this mine up to 1950. In old times the university professors of Mining Academy in Banská Štiavnica were speaking about its unique interior with honour, calling it a Schoolbook of Mining.
