Cathedrals Beach is one of the best-kept secrets of Galicia. Constant pounding from the Atlantic Ocean has sculpted this natural work of art into fine contours that are seen today. The name Cathedrals resulted due to its small vaulted caves and resembling medieval Gothic architecture which are strewn all along this particular section of the shore. The massive rock formation on Cathedrals Beach in Galicia, northwestern Spain could be hiding ancient treasure due to some findings which were done by different individuals at different times.

According to BBC, among the historic background that made curiosity among many researchers was the manmade canal carved in the ground, which resembled the canal used by the Romans to excavate gold mines in the area. This feature creates a lot of suspicious thoughts to many on the availability of gold mine at the time when Roman Empire had power in Galicia.

Also, another finding is inside the caves, there are quartz veins on the beach which are similar to those on mines near the cathedrals Beaches. This creates thoughts among the researchers that there could be gold in the beach due to this similar rock structures with those located at the mines found along the beach. This only means that cathedral is rich in gold.

As reported by Nature World News, Another finding which increased the belief of presence of gold at the Cathedral Beaches is the Roman furnaces which are said to have been used to make ceramics and fragments of dolium. These earthenware containers were used by Romans to move and store goods, which were used to link invaders to the beach who are suspected to have been the gold miners at the Cathedral Beaches.

Perhaps there should be a change of decisions with the Galician government to let the investigation take place so as to identify and proving the availability of gold at the Beach.
