Let's save the Rajao Cabezo: we demand the immediate intervention of the city council in view of the risk of disappearance of the important mineral archaeological remains (10/05/2017)

The Sierra Minera de La Unión, classified as a Site of Cultural Interest within the category of Historic Site, includes a landscape in which numerous vestiges and constructions of our mining past are conserved.

Within this landscape is the mining complex of Cabezo Rajao, which is currently in a pitiful state of neglect, without the current socialist Mayor Pedro López Milan has done nothing for its maintenance, as it happens with our municipality.

That is why we urge the current government team to take whatever measures are necessary for its maintenance and restoration, and thereby to put in value one of the great jewels of our heritage.

In this sense, the fact that its extension is shared between the municipal terms of La Union and Cartagena, also makes it necessary for our city council to require and require that of the neighboring city that also adopt the necessary measures for the conservation, restoration and setting In value of the vestiges miners existing within the zone of territory cartagenero.

We hope that the well-known friendship between the two mayors will not prevent us from putting the interests of the Union before their personal relationship, as it should be their obligation.

It is the oldest mining operation in the Sierra de Cartagena-La Unión, and the most emblematic one, Cabeza Rajao, which contrasts with the mining remains from the peak of the same from the late nineteenth century to the mid-twentieth century (Castilletes, chimneys, Laundries, etc.)

Since Roman times, it was an important mining center, (its name comes precisely from the "raja" produced in the cabezo by the mining), and you can still see remains of Roman times such as some wells.
