While walking the pilgrims route to Compostella, we stayed in Atapuerca looking forward to seeing the archeological site. We went first to the interpretaion centre in the centre of the village which had ridiculous videos showing how primitive people lived, lots of daubing of blood and love interest!
We then walked out on a long dusty track to the archaeological site, breathing in the dust as other visitors drove past. When we got to the site we were not allowed in without a guide, and there was no guide for some hours. We sat in the shade for a while as group after group of walkers arrived and were turned away. The girl on the desk took no money while we were there. The site would be better financed if people were allowed to go in. i will go back, but I was VERY disappointed at the time.
