people who come to Las Médulas are happy to visit the Mirador de
Orellán, a viewpoint from which one can admire one of the best
panoramic views of the Las Médulas gold mine. However, the best option
for a good understanding of this landscape is not just visiting the
Mirador but to follow one or more of these proposed itineraries –
depending on the time available. These routes are the best way of
getting a spatial understanding of the historic process that produced
this cultural landscape and the only alternative for being able to see
it in its totality.
There are books available for further information on Las Médulas. Specifically, our proposed itineraries follow the routes indicated in La Zona Arqueológica de Las Médulas (León). Guía Arqueológica, Junta de Castilla y León – Instituto de Estudios Bercianos, Ponferrada, 1999.
