Los Gallardos Almeria

Located in the lower Almanzora valley about 73 kilometres from Almería by motorway its name is derived from the number of residents whose name was Gallardo.

The town grew to support mining operations in the Sierra Almagrera at the beginning of the 19th century with the discovery of large deposits of lead and iron.

There are the remains of mining activity between the municipalities of Bédar and Los Gallardos, as well as fragments of the overhead cable from Pinar to Garrucha.

There are also been a railway track linking Los Gallardos with Bédar and Garrucha, and one of the bridges still exists over the N340 near La Perulaca.
