<b>The Mazarron Mining Reserves Mazarron places of interest Murcia</b>


The San Cristóbal and Los Perules mining reserve was used during the 19th and 20th centuries. Mazarrón underwent revival when the old Roman mines and other smaller installations begun to be worked once more.

This recovery of the mining activity involved the creation of a large foundry which was located beside the Port of Mazarrón and where the minerals extracted from the mines were processed.

The modern age of splendour of the Mazarrón mines was set in motion in 1880, with investment from foreign companies who invested heavily in Mazarrón.

The mines had been worked many centuries earlier, in Roman times, when Mazarrón's special geological characteristics were exploited in addition to its easy access by sea and proximity to Carthago Nova.
