Other/historical names associated with this locality:Elvira Mine


Mina Elvira is one of the names for a mining concession of 109 "pertenencias" (properties) of an iron mine named Elvira, located in the Gavà city area, between the streams Curtills and Brugués (Barcelona), around 1945.

Former names are "Jesús" (1941), "La Gavarra" (the 1930's), etc. The locals know these mines as the "Rocabruna mines". This name comes from the brown (bruna) color of the rocks. Rocabruna is the hill where these mines are located, in the Les Ferreres mountains (not to be confused with the Les Ferreres mine, Rocabruna, Camprodon, Catalonia).
"Elvira mine" is one of the old names of these iron mines.
