Mirador de Orellan Reviews
Imprescindible para tener una vista general de las Médulas. Aconsejable ir a la puesta de sol que es cuando hay más matices de colores. more »It is essential to have a view of las Médulas general. It is advisable to go to the sunset which is when there are more shades of colors.
El aparcamiento está a un corto paseo del mirador, aunque si hay que reseñar que este paseo, tiene bastante inclinación, y para subir es bastante más pesado que para bajar.

The viewpoint is free access, and has great views of Las Médulas. In addition, if you already have some information of the area and exploitation, you can see more details, such as brands of pipes of water to the mines. The viewpoint has no schedule, but from that point, with the same slope, but also down stairs you can access the galleries, and these if they have time, and come twice see it a loss of time, so better do it in the same visit. The views from the observation deck are much better than from the gallery.
Uno de los miradores más espectaculares de España. Al lado tiene una entrada para acceder a una de las antiguas minas more »One of the most spectacular viewpoints of Spain. On the side it has an entry to access one of the old mines
You can't miss this place. Highly recommended
Wow! This point of view and everything just magical! It probably is an amazing place for hiking. Must be mounted using a dedicated shuttle. There are several courses which some with routes to market. You can leave your car in the parking lot below. Count €5 for the shuttle, and €3 for visit old mines with gold at the top of the mirador.
Spectacular! Must have! It has parking area. (visit to cave with helmet for €3)
From the free parking, there is a short but demanding ascent. When you reach the viewpoint, you simply have spectacular views of the Roman mine of las Medulas and el Bierzo. The mine had seen her in photos and documentaries, but must be seen live, is simply spectacular... The Red Earth and forests of chestnut trees to its around... It is worth and much, though if you think about it calmly, it is a monument to the greed human, of what human beings can do for gold.
