SPAIN - Las Médulas

"In the 1st century A.D. the Roman Imperial authorities began to exploit the gold deposits of this region in north-west Spain, using a technique based on hydraulic power. After two centuries of working the deposits, the Romans withdrew, leaving a devastated landscape. Since there was no subsequent industrial activity, the dramatic traces of this remarkable ancient technology are visible everywhere as sheer faces in the mountainsides and the vast areas of tailings, now used for agriculture." -

Postcard 2: El Bierzo during Winter

It's really amazing how a certain place turns into a different view on different seasons in other parts of this universe.
I really wish to experience snow one day.
Thank you so much Belen for sharing this postcard with me!
Thank you so much also for using such great stamp!
I love the story behind the Taj Mahal... ^-^
