Las Medulas - the Roman gold mine


Las Médulas, located in the region of El Bierzo ( Castile and León, Spain), used to be the most important gold mine in the Roman Empire. Las Médulas Cultural Landscape is listed by the UNESCO as one of the World Heritage Sites.

Hard to believe but this landscape of natural beauty is men made.

We were lucky to explore that area in mid June 2009.
