Description of Parque Minero La Unión

In La Unión , in the Sierra Minera de Cartagena you can visit the Mining Park . This project aims to show the entire mining industry that was developed in Murcia .

Tours and guided tours have several parts. The tour begins with a return on a mining train, a ride that if you go with children you will enjoy a lot. Then you can visit different facilities that make up the park complex where you will know the mines from which different materials were extracted. You will know the Agrupa Vicenta mine and the conditions in which the miners worked.

These are Deposits of the Mining Park:

  • Highway 33 . Legendary route that crosses the Sierra Minera, this road connects all the points of the Mining Park.
  • Paid Mine Reef . An old open pit tin mine.
  • Mina Agrupa Vicenta . It is the only underground mine in Murcia that has become a Museum and the main attraction of the park.
  • Mina Pablo and Virginia . This exploitation of pyrite has been rebuilt.
  • Polvorín . Polvorín is called the place where gunpowder was stored, which was later used to exploit the mines. It's funny because there is a small chapel inside.
  • Paid mine laundry . Tin was concentrated in a laundry room to separate minerals mechanically.
  • Sludge raft . A deposit or dump of minerals that did not work.
  • Roasting oven . It was used for roasting some minerals that enriched their metal levels.
  • Coil . These are galleries that were built on the slopes of the mountains and functioned as a chimney.
