Las Médulas cover a large area and so we recommend that a visit starts with theARCHAEOLOGICAL INFORMATION CENTRE. A walk round the centre takes a short time and will help you to get your bearings for the area and to plan your visit. This is a centre set up by the Junta de Castilla y León and its didactic montage provides an understanding of gold mining in Las Médulas and the changes implied by the Roman workings in the area.

Besides the Aula Arqueologica there are other two information centres in Las Médulas. The VISITORS RECEPTION CENTRE (Las Médulas) and the INFORMATION CENTRE of Puente de Domingo Flórez. There you will find information on the area and the various itineraries.
