We started at Tijola, we went up the road to Bayarque and then to Bacares. From Bacares we go to the mining town of Las Menas, which is an old 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 the Menas mining town you can see many important buildings of the era of great architectural quality, among which the Hermitage of Santa Barbara, the hospital, offices, pavilion of workers, workshops and several houses of managers and technicians.
Then we continue the route to Serón using the old road AL-5406, a little narrow and winding but has a special charm and hardly any traffic.
