It was 1824 when gold was first found on Aruba. Perhaps people found gold before this date but those findings were never registered. The founder of this ore was a twelve-year-old boy named Willem Rasmijn. He was herding his father’s sheep in Rooi Fluit when he encountered the precious metal. Of coarse this started a heavy gold fever. Everyone went looking for gold. However what they found had to be sold to the government at a fixed price.

    While not much remains it is worth seeing. It is along the way of many other sites and the history is worth the stop.

  • Bushiribana (Goldmine)

    Buen lugar como parte de la hidalgo de aruba, falta mayor preparación de los guías (para los que hablamos español especialmente) y/o letreros con reseña del lugar. Igual vale la pena visitar

  • Bushiribana (Goldmine)

    El lugar es un poco retirado, pero vale la pena el viaje. Fue interesante conocer, además de las hermosas playas de la isla, la historia de la misma. Sería bueno que en los alrededores hubiesen textos explicando la historia del lugar o en su defecto, guías que cuenten lo que ocurría hace muchos años en el sitio. Bonita experiencia en Aruba.
