Royal Tin Factory trip




4-4,5 hours


Officially declared as a Historic Industrial Monument

This beautiful tour takes us to the XVIII century Royal Tin Factory in the heart of the Genal Valley, driving along different scenarios and narrow steep tracks, climbing from our base (830mts) upto 1060 mts to descend down to the 430 mts where the winery is located, passing along a natural natural monument called Los Riscos de Cartajima, and the Blue Adventure (Smurf) town of Júzcar, where Sony Pictures presented the smurf films.
Stunning views all the way; on a clear day we can even see Gibraltar on the skyline.

Driving right through the territory of century old oak and Chestnut trees we reach the ancient San Miguel Royal Tin Factory dating from year 1725. The Real Fabrica de Hojalata as its called in spanish is officially declared as a Historic Industrial Monument with cultural interest. It still maintains the original buildings; the first blast furnace of Spain, and where the laminates of tin sheets were processed. The San Miguel church has also been restored, as the workers' village.

Completely restored by its current owner it has been converted into a beautiful ecological winery, and the complete production of wine (from grape to the bottle) is done all on the winery itself.

Optional lunch is possible and can be decided on the spot.

Great historic explanation of the full property will be given and ofcourse also about the production of its wine, which we get to taste in its different states of elaboration, before we have get the chance to have a great glass of the final 100% ecological product with a small local "tapa" snack.

Wines can aso be purchased directy from the winery.

On the way back, we make a stop at Alpandeire (legacy of Fray Leopoldo) to have a drink before returning to our base. There is the possibility of making the visit and ending the route there, that is, eat and drink in the winery as much as you want and then we will organize the return by taxi or minibus (depending on the group size) to our facilities.

For this route it will be necessary to book at least 2 buggies.
