El Tesorero mines.

A long way from anywhere, in the Sierra de Baza, it is hard to see how the engineering works, tools, materials etc. were brought here in the absence of motorized vehicles. El Tesorero ran from the late 19th century and closed in 1923. Access by 4x4. The most successful mine was that of Hernán Cortés which had a vertical shaft with six galleries. The iron ore was carried by aerial cable to Km 108 where there was the loader.

Access to the site is by forestry track from Autovía-334 and then following for 16.7km. The right turn will lead directly to the mine offices.

For information regarding the aerial cable, see here.
