Description of Workcamp:
REGION.- Region of Castilla La Mancha. Province of Ciudad Real.
DESCRIPTION OF WORK.- The work that volunteers will be doing at
the Camp will consist of recovering utensils, items and work
tools that were used at the famous Almaden Mines.
The idea is to do this recovery work to conserve all the
instruments that were used for mining but have now fallen into
disuse, to restore them and then exhibit them at the Mining
Museum in the village.
Another goal for the Camp is for volunteers and local young
people to live together and get to know each other, thus
promoting cultural exchange that will have a positive impact on
both the volunteers’ group and the local community alike.
Almaden Council is offering its support in planning and
organising the camp.
