The Ministry of Tourism and Culture of the Autonomous Community of the Region of Murcia has allocated a subsidy amounting to 55,000 euros to improve the Castle of Nogalte.
In particular, the work is intended to be carried out in various points of the fortification, focusing mainly on the walls, which are practically the total of the original elements visible today.
The project also plans to carry out restoration works in the triacodada door, as well as in the area where the archaeological excavations carried out to document and recover the wall cloth during 2017 and 2018 have been focused.
In this way, the main activities to be developed in this project would focus "on the volumetric reintegration of the wall at the eastern end of the Castilomedia by recovering the canvas using original construction techniques," points out the councilor for Culture, María Victoria Jerez, "as well as interventions in the zone of the triacodada door to stop its deterioration, volumically recover what was lost and apply solutions that avoid the reproduction of such degradation ".
To this must be added actions in the meetings between original and contemporary walls to address the original mass loss situation by disintegration caused by meteorological agents, as well as cracks and some landslides.
To conclude, MÂª Victoria Jerez affirmed that "Puerto Lumbreras has a great patrimonial wealth that we must protect, conserve and disseminate to advance in the knowledge of our culture and make our history known."
