GOLD ROUTE AND ROMAN ROUTE

Imagen de ROME IN THE REGION. <BR/>GOLD ROUTE AND ROMAN ROUTE

The current town of Astorga covers and hide its superb Roman past that arises in some points showing its magnitude and importance. This Roman presence reaches the nearby regions,  its exploitations forming an incomparable mining site in  Ancient times.

Astorga is born during the Cantabrian Wars in which Rome ends ups conquering the Hispanic north-west at the end of the first century B. C. It does it as a military camp for the “Legio X Gemina". Once the war is over, after discovering the gold-bearing potential of these regions and because of its strategic enclave , the camp gives way to an important town, judicial capital of the north-west which will control and distribute the wealth  obtained in these lands towards Rome.

After a great work on the side of the Town Hall of Astorga, a number of sites have been set up, many of them fitted out under buildings, by which a tour can be made through history and the buildings of the Roman town.

 

Besides, you will know and tour the nearby regions and the different archaeological sites around the Roman mining of gold extraction and the huge effort of engineering to obtain it. La Maragatería, La Cabrera and El Bierzo have hundreds of kilometres of channels to transport water, pools  to storage it, mines, hill-forts and above all, landscapes transformed by the destructive action of  the  Roman  gold-bearing.

Know through history and its remains the birth of a town and the modification of a landscape for the extraction of gold , know from our town the old “dorado” of León and the Romanization of the province.
