Minas de Mazarrón at sunset

WI_e5037.jpg

This mine was in operation until 1966. Silver, lead, and zinc were extracted through deep mining. Later on, the facilities were abandoned and declared a cultural heritage. The hill in the centre of this photo most likely represents a partly eroded mine dump.
