Historical site in Aruba - worthwhile visiting

Cool site, saw it on ABC Tours - these guys got you to A BUNCH of sites. This was the site of an old gold mine. Free, out of the way. See it on one of many tours available... read more

Cool site, saw it on ABC Tours - these guys got you to A BUNCH of sites. This was the site of an old gold mine. Free, out of the way. See it on one of many tours available throughout the island.

Was a very pretty site sitting right on the coast line. You can walk around and in the Mill. If you get hungry there is a food cart out front.

The ruins here are definitely interesting with just a few walls still standing. I'm entirely sure of what the story is behind them, obviously something to do with gold mining, but the ruins are a cool place to explore along the drive around Aruba.

Impressive look at Aruba's gold mining history. Climb the ruins and enjoy the great view up and down the coast, you can see perfect blue waves crash the beach and hills and cactus like the southwest of the U.S.

A great place to visit. Gorgeous view and easy to get to. Great for families big and small. The hikes is really easy but the view is absolutely breathtaking.

Just at the turn onto the graded road, in fact. It blends into the scenery as it was built into the landscape. Very interesting architecture. Massive. Fun to explore.

Nice to see it as a part of the tour, good view from there. It does not take more than 15 mins to see it.

Make sure before you go into the ruins you grab a rock and everyone in your party places said rock on top of the other making a wish in the process then enjoy touring around inside the ruins.
