A new phase for the old grain silo at the entrance to Jimena

(Source: press release) A new phase began last week for the (apparently endless) renovation of the old silo at the entrance to Jimena village (photo: JP file). The building that was once used as a grain silo for the area is being turned into an 'ethnographic centre', as well as a tourist information centre for the village and Los Alcornocales Nature Park. This phase involves plumbing and wiring and is to be carried out by (yet another, nevertheless welcome) employment scheme, with a total budget of €199,588, aimed at giving work to those formerly working in the construction industry, and also to what are called 'rural workers'. The building has been renovated keeping the old grain conduits, presumably aspart of an eventual museum or suchlike.
