Archaeological Site of Atapuerca - Spain

I finally have a card from this spanish unesco site. I've seen someone offering it on the unesco offers tags but i was always late to tag that person. But now, Fabienne "famalubel" was offering it on the Unesco thread and we arranged a trade.

The Atapuerca Mountains (Sierra de Atapuerca in Spanish) is an ancient karstic region of Spain, in the province of Burgos and near Atapuerca and Ibeas de Juarros. It contains several caves, where fossils and stone tools of the earliest known Hominins in West Europe have been found. The earliest hominids may have dated to 1.2 million years ago, representing the first in Europe. "The Archeological Site of Atapuerca" has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. - in: wikipedia
