Three companies are invited to tender for the conservation of two towers as well as a canvas of Wall of Andujar.

Jesus Estrella, acting Government delegate, reported at a conference that three companies submitted bids to conserve two towers and the wall canvas on Luis Vives de Andujar Street for a sum of 263,320 Euros with a term for execution of six months.

The acting Board's representative stated that "the conservation works will be executed prioritizing criteria for minimal intervention, of respecting the authenticity of differentiation between what is present and what has been interfered with, ruling out radical and complete reconstruction that could lead to the loss of the building's identity and global image." The formal restitution is what is being planned. This is to restore unity to the property and preserve the rest of monument.

Jesus Estrella stated, "We are facing an unique stretch of wall", to emphasize that it is a representative element of the art and building fortifications within the Upper Guadalquivir (polyorcetic). It is therefore essential to consolidate and conserve it.

Both towers can be supported up to the heights of the roundabout. The upper body was created by an arch-accessible room. Inside this space, a vaulted ceiling was added to reinforce bricks. This gave way to a narrow staircase that led to the battlemented roof. Brick facings strengthened the base of these towers. The vaulted ceilings, flat roof and their remnants are now inside.

Through Additional Provision 2 to Law 16/1985 on Spanish Historical Heritage, the wall of Andujar is an Asset of Cultural Importance. It has been designated as such since 1985. It is also included in the Historical Ensemble for the delimited section of Andujar. This was declared an Asset Cultural Interest under DECREE 204/2007 of July 10.
