According to the Marqués de la Ensenada Cadastre, there was a famous loan, called “de Tabladillo”, from which it is said that the name of Tabladas came from. In this cadastre, the agriculture and livestock are described. It is also here where it is officially certified as the origin of the Rio Tuerto.

In his day the traditional productions were rye, potatoes, flax, pastures and vegetables; that of breeding cattle, goats and sheep; hunting partridges, hares, wolves, wild boars and foxes, and trout fishing.


Then there were wood charcoal and flax yarn manufacturing. In the middle of the 20th century, there was the mining boom that generated good wages. Heather charcoal was also made, which was abundant throughout the area, through a curious artisanal system with small mounds.
