Bushiribana Gold Mill Ruins
Although explorers set sail to the New World in search of gold, it 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 Arabian industry until around 1916. Fun Fact: Gold is reflected in the island's name. And Aruba has produced more than three million pounds of the precious metal. Here, wind-swept stone ruins stand tall in the middle of a wide expanse of untouched land.
