Salvemos la chimenea de la fábrica de papel.

La chimenea es el símbolo por excelencia de la ciudad de Peñarroya-Pueblonuevo y el Cerco de la Sociedad Minera y Metalúrgica de Peñarroya (SMMP) es el más importante de sus monumentos. Tras años de expolio y abandono, urge poner en marcha iniciativas de recuperación y rehabilitación patrimonial de algunos de esos elementos de forma barata, eficaz y, lo que es más relevante, implicando a la juventud local. El municipio lo necesita por cuestiones de autoestima, turismo y economía la puesta en valor de su Patrimonio Industrial.

Los objetivos son:
Restauración de la chimenea de la fábrica de papel con una iniciativa de recaudación popular. Nuestro objetivo es concienciar a la población local sobre la importancia del Patrimonio Industrial en su muncipio, promocionar turísticamente la ciudad a través de este tipo de patrimonio y crear un potente icono identificativo.

Por esta razón, la asociación lanza una campaña de recaudación de fondos para salvar y restaurar una primera chimenea, la de la antigua fábrica de papel.

También puede ayudar a salvar y restaurar la chimenea, donando algunos euros al proyecto, transfiriéndolo al número de cuenta de la asociación La Maquinilla/

Chimneys are par excellence the symbol of the city of Peñarroya-Pueblonuevo. The industrial area of the Mining and Metallurgical Society (SMMP) of Peñarroya, known as “el Cerco” is the most important of its monuments. After years of abandonment and pillaging, it is urgent to implement initiatives for the restoration and rehabilitation of some elements of this heritage both in an efficient and inexpensive way, but most importantly, in a way that involves the local population and especially youth.
The town’s industrial heritage needs to be showcased so as to boost its self-esteem, tourism and economy.

The goals of the project are:
-To save and restore the Industrial Heritage of the Mining and Metallurgical Society of Peñarroya (SMMP).
-To turn the industrial brick chimney into the landmark of the city of Peñarroya-Pueblonuevo.

  • To involve the young people of Peñarroya-Pueblonuevo in the rehabilitation of its Industrial Heritage.
    -To make young people aware of the need for caring about the material memory of the SMMP.
    -To promote industrial tourism related to the SMMP in the town.
    -To turn the chimney into the real international reference for all the groups and towns that one day were linked to this company.
    -To involve the local authorities in the restoration of the Industrial Heritage of Peñarroya-Pueblonuevo.
  • To obtain the Industrianalabel of the European Federation of Associations of Industrial and Technical Heritage, as European site of Industrial Interest and a as recognition of good practice in relation to this type of heritage.

For this reason the association launches a fund raising campaign to save and restore a first chimney, the one of the former paper factory.
