The light is beginning to shine on heritage enhancement

There are some hope signs that some of the unfinished projects in the heritage and historic center areas of the city may be revived.

One refers to the enhancement of Arab walls and towers. Their state of degrading reached the point of an emergency intervention by the Ministry of Culture and Heritage in 2019. This was in a section of Luis Vives street that was about to fall. BOJA published the tender on June 17 for restoration of the Almohad walls. These walls date back to the 11th Century. The deadline for interested companies to submit their proposals to perform works amounting to 265,000 Euros is July 4. "We are going to permit Andujar to incorporate these walls into its urban area, and, incidentally to single out in tourist and cultural areas to the city." Jesus Estrella, acting Government Delegate, pointed this out. The Board intends that the remodeling be adapted to the original structure of these walls.

These works will begin the expropriation process for garages that were attached to part these walls. "We could not execute it this year because compensation was budgeted to the owners but the budgets couldn't come out because they had Vox’s vote against the PSOE," Estrella clarified. In 2023, the complete removal of the walls will be possible. A provision of lighting is also planned for Luis Vives Street, where a large portion of these walls are.

Altozano Dean Perez

Other news in recent days has been encouraging for the city’s heritage. After the City Council's request, the Provincial Heritage Commission praised the file regarding the archaeological intervention in Altozano Dean Perez de Vargas. This will require three tastings at Calle Alcazar to determine the condition in which the foundations of this wall were found. Then, they will be valued and consolidated and contributed to the Ministry of Culture's recovery project. Estrella, who was the last to hold the territory delegation of Heritage, wished to "unblock a project which has been stalled since more than 20 years". This action will be incorporated in the historic heart of the city, according to the Board. Estrella stated, "To make it attractive to the city."

This archaeological site is close to significant historical remains such as the Roman Bridge, Fuente la Sorda tower and the walls of Calle Silera (a Historical-Artistic Complex), making it an ideal place for the dissemination historical heritage. From the city.
