Did you know that... Porciles

 

It is part of the parish of the same name within the council of Tineo. Porciles is located in the Alto de Porciles to the west of the capital and is an obligatory pass of the Primitive Way. The name Porciles seems to derive from Latin and means storms. Its foundation may date from the 18th century, but it is not possible to rule out population settlements that were very much prior to this.

Curiosities

 

The remains of the exploitation systems used by the Romans to extract gold are preserved in these areas. When they discovered a gold deposit, they built a network of pipes and water tanks that served as a means of obtaining and washing the gold. They drilled the mountain, made cuttings and even destroyed it completely, ruina montium, in order to achieve it. In this parish the main place was Lavadoira. But it is true that before the Roman conquest, here was already exploited the technique of batting to get the gold dragged by the rivers of the place since its birth in the known as Sierra del Ouro.
