Mining Town Los Guindos

The remoteness of some mines from the population added to the hard work of the miners the fatigue of the daily walk to and from the mine, a distance of more than 8 or 9 km. This led to the creation of mining settlements around the mines themselves, and the large companies favoured the establishment of their workers, paying for the construction of houses, water and electricity supplies, churches and even schools if the population grew.

About 8 km from La Carolina, along El Centenillo road (JA-6100), in the heart of the Sierra Morena, it is a magnificent living testimony to the important mining activity of the district and the way of life of the miners.
