The spectacular landscape of Las Medulas

Share/Bookmark

The town of Las Médulas is located in the region of El Bierzo, Leon. This small mountain town marks the natural beginning of the ascent towards Las Médulas, a unique cultural landscape that was declared a World Heritage by UNESCO. It is a historic mining site near the town of Ponferrada in the region of El Bierzo, which used to be the most important gold mine in the Roman Empire. To extract gold, the Romans built seven huge aqueducts which drew the rivers in the nearby mountains down into the mine, burying the area underwater. After two centuries of work, the Romans abandoned the site, leaving it in its current shape.

Duro Canyon State Park

Share/Bookmark

Less than a half hour drive south of Amarillo, Texas is the mysterious terra cotta badlands of Palo Duro Canyon. Palo Duro Canyon is the most spectacular and scenic landscape feature of Texas. Palo Duro Canyon, which is known as the Grand Canyon of Texas and is supposedly the second largest in the USA. This is based on its length (120 miles) rather than depth, as although very colorful, rugged and scenic, the ravine is never more than 800 feet deep, so quite shallow by Southwest canyon standards. Its a very popular place for tourists, campers, picnickers, photographers, backpackers, RV-ers, hikers, horse riders and cyclers.
