In the spring of 2007, during construction of AVE Madrid-Levante, a large accumulation of fossil bones was discovered in the municipality of Fuentes. The site is located a few kilometres from the capital, and although not accessible, thanks to the Interpretation Centre of Fuentes, you can discover the unique past that lies beneath the characteristic sunflower fields in the territory. The exhibition centre explains the life and habitat of fish, crocodiles, turtles or sauropods such as titanosaurs. All fossils found among the more than 14,000 excavated remains, make this corner of the Serrania a unique place in the European paleontological context.

At the heart of the Serrania de Cuenca lies one of the most important paleontological sites in Europe: Las Hoyas. Las Hoyas was formed about 125 million years ago during the later Cretaceous era, wherein more than 132 different genera of animals and plants were recorded.

The interpretive centre of Canada del Hoyo has a 3D photograph of the lake ecosystem, which is the most important place for researching the aquatic vegetation and the variety of species that inhabited it. Its value is incalculable for its variety and because it has preserved remains of unique animals like the famous Pepito (Concavenator Corcovatus), the hunchback hunter from Cuenca.
