Details

Seron is situated o要 the lower slopes of the Sierra de los Filabres o要 the northern side far up the Almanzora valley to the west.  Here there is a little more rain, and the orchards near the river seem more exuberant than others and the country lanes behind the village are surprisingly green.  The winters here are cooler than further east when snow can often be seen o要 the mountains up behind.

Agriculture and mining have provided the wealth for this prosperous village from the time of the Phoenicians through to the Greeks, Romans and Moors; it flourished particularly during the Middle Ages.

Seron Castle, very obviously constructed for defensive purposes is found in the highest part of the village, where it dominates the valley and enemy hordes could be seen from a distance.  Indeed the castle played an important role during the time of the Moors.

In the 19th Century, Seron shone again, this time because of the mines, lead mines to begin with and iron o要es in later years.  There are many visible reminders of this time of prosperity in the area, and the nearby village of Las Menas was well known for the necessary servicies for the industry that it provided.   These mines were worked until 1968 and today, visitors can see the original buildings, which have been restored by the Andalucian government.

In 1983, the Parish Church de la Anunciacion (1623 1633), was included in the catalogue of national monuments.  Inside, its three naves are interconnected by eight perfect, rounded arches which rest o要 rectangular pillars.  Perhaps even more spectacular is the taller, central naves extraordinary Moorish style ceiling, in particular, the matching crosspieces, struts and the centrepiece.

Two other notable buildings are the single-naved Hermitage de la Virgen de los Remedios, built during the 19th century when it probably replaced an earlier, more modest church, and the 17th century Hermitage de la Virgen de la Cabeza.

Now the mines have closed and the economy of the municipality is principally based o要 farming and the food industry which is helped by the microclimate so appropriate for the natural curing of sausages and hams.

The villages position, together with its new hotel, camping site and
recreation area (La Jordana), makes it an excellent location from which to
explore the Sierra de Filabres with its pine forests, deep valleys and
wonderful open high ground.   From high points of the mountains the views
are fantastic, stretching inland to the mountain ranges of Sierra Mar燰 and
Baza and o要 a clear day the summit of La Sagra mountain at 2,382 metres.

Within the yearly cycle of fiestas in Seron the most popular are the o要e held o要 15th August in honour of the Patron Saint the Virgen of the Remedies, the illuminations of Saint Lucia (13th December), the country picnic o要 the Candlemass Day (2nd February), the Easter processions and the Ham Fiesta (first weekend of July).
