I recently came across this little gem of a book. Written by David Gaunt, a fellow who’s been coming to Mojacar for quite some time, it’s an enthusiastic book detailing the construction of the local railways at the turn of the last century, and how they affected the local villages and populations. Lots of photos and interviews.
Well worth a read if you’re interested in the old railways or mines that litter this area. Buy it from amazon.co.uk.
