"Near Gois - Tres Minas Roman..." Portugal Off The Beaten Path Tip by donb

Portugal Off The Beaten Path: 322 reviews and 400 photos

Near Gois - Tres Minas Roman open-cast Gold mines hand dug by slaves; two holes each several hundered metres each way and 70-odd metres deep. Even if the geology doesn't interest you the surrounding area is remote and beautiful
