Vegas de Matute

ZANCAO INDUSTRIAL ARCHEOLOGY PARK

Located at the foot of the Calocos mountains, there is the largest concentration of lime kilns in Spain. Since medieval times, the neighbors of Vegas have burned the limestones in buildings of very archaic tradition; the old lime-kilns are conserved, with more than twenty kilns that have peculiar portals used to store firewood and as a refuge for the calero while watching the fire. The resulting lime was used to disinfect homes and churches by liming. Guided tours are organized by contacting the Geominera Commonwealth.
