In an area such as Sierra Minera, located in Cartagena-La Unión, damaged by mining, the project aims at fostering sustainable tourism which will contribute to overcoming the environmental deficit of the area and which will offer an alternative to the prevailing model of mass tourism.

Being a pioneer project in our Sierra, it binds a first experience of recovery of the facilities of two mines which have great hereditary interest, together with the environmental restoration of areas damaged by mining, and the starting of ecocultural tourism alternatives, trying to find a strategy of sustainable development of the area.

The goal is to settle the bases for local rational developmet, which will not compromise its resources and which can count on the participation of its local people, fostering a tourist activity which can minimize environmental costs through the sustainable use of its own nature and the cultural inheritance it possesses.

1.- To articulate a strategy of development of an environmental and cultural tourism evaluating environmental impact and how much the area could bear.
