A place to learn about a long-established activity in Asturias related to one of the noble metals: gold.

The current boom in gold mining in Asturias has revitalized the public interest in an activity which, though forgotten, goes back thousands of years in the region.

An educational exhibition on this topic has been created in Belmonte consisting of panels, a model of the Roman gold mine of Las Medulas (León) and several mineral exhibits.

Starting from the prehistoric period, visitors can take a tour of the various metal mines and the significance this activity had for the inhabitants of the area.
