banner of March 14, 2017
|title||Cubillos del Sil, the heart of El Bierzo|
|info||The territory of El Bierzo is one of the most beautiful region of the Northwest Spain. This territory, which occupies 2,828 km2, includes most of the best varieties metals and mineral deposits of the world. It is surrounded by mountains on all sides, which makes this area remarkably isolated from all neighbouring lands. Starting in the late 1980s most mines were closed, and after the collapse of the mining industry the region was for a while in a crisis. However, in the late 1990s the region underwent a major transformation with the establishment of several industrial and services firms, the reintroduction of commercial wine production, the opening of a local branch of the University of León in Ponferrada offering several undergraduate degrees, and in general a radical improvement of the region's infrastructure. The economy is now based mainly on tourism, agriculture (fruit and wine), wind power generation and slate mining.|
