Atapuerca, World Heritage

Atapuerca is not just another archeological settlement but the Rosetta stone of the evolution of humans in Europe whose importance led UNESCO to declare it a piece of world heritage on November 30th 2000.

Thanks to the extraordinary finds in the Sierra Burgalesa (Burgos' mountain range), many questions regarding prehistoric man have been answered. An old railway cutting whose tracks ceased screeching at the beginning of the 20th century made the discovery of the first Europeans possible.

This earthly crack or fissure has had a resounding effect on the Trinchera Galería, the Trinchera Dolina, the Sima de los Huesos and other locations that show the lifestyle of groups of humans who left traces in the Sierra de Atapuerca as long as one million years ago.

15 kilometres from Burgos, in the area surrounding the Road to Santiago, the Sierra de Atapuerca shows the land on which the first Europeans settled. This settlement, each year, unveils interesting scientific finds and has become a major tourist and cultural attraction.
