Lubrin is a "municipality" with a library, health centre, gymnasium, swimming pool and sports centre. Being in a Mountain range the streets can be quite steep, but the higher you climb, the more spectacular the view becomes; presenting a fine panorama of the surrounding countryside with its hidden history of an earlier time in the cave of Los Morciguillos and the remains of a Moorish castle dating from the occupation of this part of Spain by Arab invaders.
Farming has always been a very important source of local economy in Lubrin, although earlier in the 20th century the mining of iron ore also provided much needed work in the general area and surrounding villages of Bedar, Serena and Los Pinos. However, the mines have long since closed down and these days the region is opening up to rural tourism running alongside agricultural development.
