WHAT WE’LL SEE
In the Los pozuelos of Alcolea highway, there is a treasure of the industrial heritage, inexplicably abandoned: El Martinete. It is an industrial complex of the middle of the 19th century, a building which was built for the development of the iron metallurgy, at the request of an engineer from Bilbao in La Finca de la Crespa.
El Martinete of los Pozuelos de Calatrava, is an impressive industrial complex consisting of buildings with different levels of which the press, the channel and the stone and brick arcades are preserved. It preserves a brick furnace reinforced with iron and a plaque of 1865.
