When the description of the Sierra de Baza was made, this was said (which may serve to describe the Sierra de Filabres):

""""
By: José Miguel Sola Fernández (Mineralogist Group of Granada) and Enrique García Guirado (University of Granada).

...
The most important mountain range, by its extension and its altitude, is Sierra Nevada, which extends with W-E direction by the provinces mentioned above and raises its summits up to 3479 meters, s.n.m., in the Granada part. To the north of this one and separated by the "Dehesas de Guadix" corridor, is located the second mountainous chain in importance, that although it is a single alignment receives two denominations: Sierra de los Filabres to the zone that belongs to the province of Almería and Sierra Of Baza to the sector of the province of Granada, where a great natural park has been formed.

Therefore, the Sierra de Baza (and Sierra de los Filabres which is its continuation and studied separately) rises between the depression of Guadix and the depression of Baza (creating the "Dehesas de Guadix" corridor, and the " Almanzora " corridor), which are two large filling basins of erosion material from these mountains.
...
-2-In the south and east (Filabres prolongation) the Palaeozoic marbles, schists and quartzites of the Nevado-Filabride complex emerge, which is formed in turn by Veleta mantles, composed of graphitic and feldspathic mica-schists, and the Mulhacen mantle, constituted by micaceous quartzites, gneisses and cypolynic marbles, and containing the mineral species detailed below, including those of the veins deposits normally found in this unit.
