Mining deposits do not always mean desolate landscapes. Sometimes mining takes place in areas of outstanding natural beauty. This is the case of the Cerro del Hierro mining area, in the heart of the Sierra Norte de Sevilla Natural Park.
Access to this area is now provided by the old railway line, recently developed by the Department of the Environment of the Regional Government of Andalusia. It follows a route through a surprisingly green landscape, given that we are in the province of Sevilla.
