The biggest tungsten mine in Spain. Presently inactive.

The site of La Parrilla is an important Scheelite-Wolframite deposit formed by a dense stockwork of veins of Quartz with a well-defined orientation which fits into an alternation of shales and graywackes of Pre-Cambrian age.
Its genesis is related to a granitic dome which exists in depth, and apparently has three distinct stages of mineralization.
