Bushiribana Gold Mill Ruins
Although explorers set sail to the New World in search of gold, that likely isn't the first thing that pops to mind when you think Caribbean. This former gold mill in the northern part of Aruba recalls the island's rush. First discovered here in 1824, gold was an important local industry until around 1916. Today, windswept stone ruins stand tall in the middle of a wide, rocky expanse.
