Aguilas railway

In Spain, the rail network is much smaller than in the rest of Europe and so it is not common that a place with 30,000 inhabitants has a rail and train station. Anguilas is already an exception and the reason is in the past, when around 1870 the ore mines led the area to economic recovery and the iron ore was transported by rail. From these years, the railway network was built and expanded as well as the loading bridge in Anguilas to load the ore on ships. Today the station is still used for people trains to Murcia. There is also a small museum about the expansion and the dismantling up to the present time.
