    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Placed in the county of El Bierzo (in the border between Castilla y Leon & Galicia), Las Medulas is the remains of the biggest gold mine of Roman Times. They basically destroyed a mountain, to obtain the gold inside. Almost 2000 years later, nature has created a fantastic landscape over it.
