Stage 8: Zarréu-El Puertu

This is a route located in a land of contrast, a territory where the most exuberant nature shares thje space with coal mines from the beginning of the XX century. Zarréu is a proof of the mining life of the region, that is still alive. The path is along the border of León, using mountains passes that need to be gone over carefully in winter. On the other hand, these paths will enjoy you. They are, without a doubt, used by bears.

At the beginning of the XX century, the coal mining was established in key points of the region. But it was in the 40’s when its production was increased. It is an activity that has suffered a decrease in the last few years. That has allowed to recover a lot of natural spaces. Nowadays there are only a few mines that continue working.
