It was the Romans who first realized there was gold in the hills of the picturesque Cothi Valley close to this ancient village.

Although the remains of their workings can still be seen at the National Trust’s Dolaucothi Gold Mine, most visitors will probably want to join an underground guided tour or even pan for the gold stuff themselves.
