La Jayona is an iron mine abandoned 100 years ago. A gigantic 80-hectare gorge, up to a hundred meters deep, condemned to be a barren desert of rock and rubble in a process similar to what the Earth experienced millions of years ago. But something absolutely extraordinary has happened within it. Wildlife has taken possession of this space, turning it into a unique ecosystem that is among the natural treasures of Europe.
Its microclimate allows the development of a unique vegetation completely alien to their environment, while it has become a refuge for many animal species, from amphibians to the almighty eagle owl.
