Nasrid Castle

It is a 13th century defensive castle that served as a refuge during the uprising of the Moorish.

The situation of the castle is majestic. In the upper part there is a small esplanade where a neo-Mudejar style tower was built at the beginning of the 20th century, which houses a clock mechanism.

Of the original fortress there is only one wall and some wall parts scattered throughout the castle.
 
Recently work has been carried out on restoring the battlements, together with construction of an outdoor scenic space and a viewpoint in the upper part of the castle.

The Almanzora Greenway, known as Iron Greenway as it passes through Seron, is the old Guadix-Almendricos railway line, nowadays in disuse.

On the Iron Greenway you can enjoy 11.8 kilometers with a minimal slope, which makes it easy for anyone, whatever their level, and makes it an ideal stretch to be done on foot or by bicycle. Along the way we will find three abandoned iron ore loading sites, hence the name of this section of the Almanzora Greenway.
 
 

Las Menas mining town


 Gallery    Map
 
 
The ferrous deposits found in this location made it the most important and productive area in the province of Almeria for more than half a century.

It was built progressively, without any defined urban planning, and housed buildings of great architectural quality, among which are the Saint Barbara Hermitage, the hospital, offices, the workers' pavilion, workshops and several managers' and technicians' houses stand out.
 
After the closure of the mines in 1968 it was completely abandoned. It was then restored in recent years as a tourist center with a visitors center, geominal interpretation center, camping area, an apartment hotel and a forest park with native trees and shrubs. These facilities enable people to discover the mining history of the area and the environmental characteristics of the Sierra de Los Filabres.
