Model Forest, Carretería and Hornos de Pez

El Pinar, its sustainable use and all activities related to the forest have been the main economic resource of the area.

El Pinar, its sustainable use and all activities related to the forest have been the main economic resource of the area.

For much of its history, Quintanar has been one of the most important focuses in the manufacture and subsequent transportation of products derived from forests, and once there was the Real Fábrica de Betunes de Quintanar de la Sierra, in which the product star was the manufacture of Pez, for the traditional caulking of ships, tarred roads and wineskins. As a vestige of these memories, there is a wide network of ovens in which this resource was produced. The most important one is the Mataca oven, in which still today there are didactic ethnographic events in order to remember those trades that have already disappeared.
