Several elements from the village life of old have also been restored, as is the case of the grain mill along with the constuction of a museum that attempts to show visitors waht life was like in the past and what kind of tools and utensils were used. However, the uniqueness of Sedella lies in its location within the Sierra Tejeda, and at the foot of the Maroma mountain. There is quite a rare form of Yew tree in the area which was once so abundant that a whole mountainside was named after it. Anyway, Sedella is still a very agricultural village with allotments, orchards, olives, almonds and vineyards.
