Lapis Specularis Mines of Saceda del Rio


Cuevas del Sanabrio can be visited so that the public knows what this material was like and how it was extracted by the Romans. A mineral that was the economic engine of the entire region for practically a century and a half that is located in very few places in Europe. A highly recommended and unique visit where you can enter ancient Roman galleries and learn how they were illuminated, how they worked and how they extracted a crystal that was sold throughout the Mediterranean. The Lapis Specularis or Crystal of Hispanía was a discovery that filled an until then unknown area with splendor and wealth.
