Name(s) in local language(s):
Cantera de los Serranos, Hondón de los Frailes, Albatera, Alicante, Comunidad Valenciana, España


The Serranos quarry is at the moment (2006) in activity. In this quarry a dolerite (alkaline subvolcanic rock) outcrop is exploited, which is used for highways. The dolerite forms sills in Triassic rocks (Keuper facies): marls, gypsum and carbonated rocks.

The quarry is in the township of Albatera, but can by accessed only from Hondón de Los Frailes (El Fondó dels Frares) country. For this reason, the locality name includes Hondón.
