Las minas de Mazarron
 
In the region around Mazarron there were already mining activities at the time of the Romans. Only in the 60s of last century did it come to an end and the mines were finally closed.
Today you can still visit the abandoned mining site of Mazarron. You will find remains of the old mine building, offices, chimneys and even the old mine shafts with lifts are still present. You will be short of eyes and especially time to see everything. But always keep in mind that you are walking on an abandoned mine site. There are several gaps on the site with a depth of several hundred meters, and not all of these are well fenced. This is certainly not an area to come with young children or dogs without leash.
