Abstract: The novel begins with a description of the landscapes on the way to Socrates' excavations, near Aldercoba, in northern Spain. There, Teodoro Golfín - a doctor specialized in eyes - went around the place in search of his brother Carlos, in charge of the mines. He arrived without getting lost thanks to Pablo, a guide who, despite being blind, described the landscape in detail. Pablo knew the place so well thanks to his guide, Nela, a 16-year-old orphan With childish appearance of very kind character. She had had a very miserable life and was poorly fed in the past. At that time she was taken in by the Centeno family. Even so, during the last months she was very happy with her beloved Pablo, with whom she toured the field every afternoon. Translated from Spain to English by Clara Bell.
