Valle del Río Fardes Palaeontological Station (Fonelas)

An exceptional facility belonging to the Geological and Mining Institute of Spain, it conducts research, dissemination and specialised teaching in the field in parallel.

Since beginning its research in 2001, more than 3,000 fossilised bones representing 38 animal species, including 24 large mammals, have been found. It is one of the few facilities of its kind to allow the in situ study and observation of the paleontological remains found. The excellent conditions for observing the landscape from the station allow for broadening the educational content and showing the evolution of the geology and landscape of the territory. There are an intense daily activity with visits of schoolchildren, scientific community and groups of visitors.
