CICUM – INTERPRETATION CENTRE FOR THE CULTURE OF WOOD
The public company RENFE created in 1942 the Sawmill Vadillo Castril where special beams and sleepers were manufactured for the railway industry, this activity that was carried out in
this village until 1986, when the company Explotaciones Forestales de RENFE (Spanish railway company) abandoned the activity in this mountain range. Through a project drafted by the
three Local Action Groups of the Natural Park area, a Tourism Promotion Plan was awarded based on the European Charter for Sustainable Tourism and products of nature and ecotourism, which was finally managed by the Provincial Council of Jaén and through the old sawmill is transformed into a center for the interpretation of wood and a museum.
