Ruins of Loropéni
The Ruins of Loropéni are the stone remains of a 1,000 years old fortified settlement that came to play an important role in the trans-Saharan gold trade. Gold was mined here in the 15th/16th centuries, and probably as early as the 11th century.
The site, mainly consisting of ruined walls, has been out of use since the 19th century and is overgrown with trees.
