Nature Reserves in Las Medulas
Las Médulas
(65)
It’s been awhile since I was motivated to spend a day in this area. Las Medulas are a gold-bearing deposit that dates back to Roman times. They channeled water in tunnels and tore through the mountain to find gold below the surface. You can still see their influence on the mountain and the landscape today. Going for a walk or hike through this place that has been proclaimed a UNESCO World Heritage site is incredible. The chestnut tree forest in beautiful, as well as the mountain. To make the most out of your trip, it’s a good idea to stop by the visitors center in the nearby town of Carucedo. They’re very kind and they’ll give you information and a map of the different trails in the park. The plan is relatively simple. If you want to see all the Medulas, it’s best to go up to the viewpoint, which you can get to following different paths. I chose one that went through the birch forest. It was incredibly beautiful but with a few inclines of over 20%, but I still think it’s the best trail.
