Home A guided visit to the Brandes mediaeval site
The mediaeval archaeological site of Brand was a silver mining village and is now classified as a historic monument. It is still the highest known mediaeval village (12th century-14th century) in Europe linked to silver mining.
Description: A guided visit to the Brandes mediaeval site
The site extends over approximately a kilometre and gives an interesting overview of how the village was organised, with its houses, symbols of religious power (Saint Nicholas Church) and civil power (shell-keep), as well as its working areas (workshops for crushing, grinding and washing the ore).
The site takes part in National Archaeological Day and European Heritage Day.
