Mountains near the Atapuerca fossil site, illustration. The Atapuerca mountain range (Sierra de Atapuerca, yellow, lower left) in the province of Burgos, Spain, contains hominid fossils providing evidence for the presence and way of life of humanity over a period of nearly one million years. It was made a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2000. The geology consists of karst, including small dolinas (subterranean chambers which open to the outside) and subterranean chambers and tunnels formed by water action. Marked on this map are the cities (red dots) of Burgos (in the Douro river basin) and Logrono (in the Ebro river basin), separated by the La Bureba corridor (centre). This corridor separates the mountains of the Iberian System (across bottom) from the Cantabrian Mountains (across top). Also marked is the Sierra de la Demanda mountain range.
