In this area the brick, tile and lime kilns proliferated. The brick and tile kilns were built of stone and brick. They were formed by three parts: the boiler, the chamber and the grill, and the dry vegetation of the environment was used as flammable material.

These kilns have a small structure of solid brick arches where the elements for cooking are placed alternately: first the bricks, and the tiles above them. For the manufacture of tiles and bricks, two different types of earth were extracted. This extraction occurred in the vicinity of the kilns. These traditional kilns were a way of life for many families of the population.

Currently the tradition of making coal and charcoal is kept. The furnace used to obtain coal is a cone-shaped wood construction, which is covered with earth and ignited by an opening in the upper part. In this way the wood is converted into coal inside the oven. The raw material used to make the coal is mainly oak.

The elaboration of the charcoal begins by the pruning of the oak. The branches are piled up and put into the bonfire. Once in the fire, wait for the wood to burn properly. When it is reduced in small pieces, water is poured. After that the obtained charcoal is piled up, left to cool and put in sacks. A good charcoal depends on the quality of the firewood used.
The charcoal was used for the braziers of the houses, although this has been replaced by electrical devices.
The manufacture of both materials was also an economic complement for many families.
