Things to do Day trip to las Medulas & Ponferrada from Leon

We leave León in the direction of Las Médulas, located some 151 km from the provincial capital. Las Médulas, a World Heritage Site, is the result of Roman gold mining during the 1st and 2nd centuries. 

Once we arrive, a guide specialised in Las Médulas will be waiting for us. In the first part of the visit, we will go to the visitor reception centre to watch a 15-minute informative documentary about the area, after which we will begin the visit.

The visit is guided and takes place on foot, and lasts 2 hours. (We recommend appropriate clothing and footwear). 

At the end of the guided tour we will go to the viewpoint of Orellán, to admire the effect caused in the mountain after the exploitation. 

After the visit to Las Médulas, we head to Ponferrada, capital of the Bierzo region. 

Don't forget to visit the Castle of the Templars or the basilica of the Virgen de la Encina!

Ponferrada hides some very charming spots! At the appointed time, return to León.
