La Union is situated in the region of Murcia. Its history is dominated by the lead, silver, zinc and iron ore mines. The mining in this area was some of the richest in the Mediterranean and has mapped out the economic, social and cultural development of this whole region. The writer and painter, A. Saez named La Union as an amazing place. To some people the landscape may seem bleak but to others bleakness is wonderful. The mine workings of the mountain ranges date back to prehistoric times in the settlements of Atalaya and Mina Balsa. In Roman times hundreds of slaves worked in the mines in this area.
