Las Menas Mining Town is an old mining town located in the Sierra de los Filabres belonging to the municipality of Serón. In this place iron was extracted from the end of the 18th century until the year 1968.

In everything related to the mining activity, up to 2,900 people were able to work; Many of them did not live in Menas and had to travel every day on foot crossing the mountain from towns such as Serón, Alcóntar, or Bacares among others.

Within Las Menas Mining Town you can see many important buildings of the time, some are completely restored but have been intended for another use, such as camping or hotel; others are currently being restored; we talk about the houses of the Director of the mines and of the Assistant Directors; and many others are found just as they remained after the emigration of the inhabitants after the closure of the mines.
