Zurgena is looking for investment to help revitalise the municipality.

Antonio Mena visits the works being carried out on the Clock Tower with the aid of the Leader Rural Development Strategies.

The territorial delegate for Agriculture, Fisheries, Water and Rural Development, Antonio Mena, has visited the municipality of Zurgena, where he held a working meeting with its mayor, Domingo Trabalón, to analyse the various issues that the territorial delegation of the Regional Ministry is developing in Zurgena, such as water purification, rural roads, Leader aid, modernisation of irrigation systems and aid for young farmers, among others.

Mr Mena also visited the Clock Tower, located on the Castle Hill, where a project is being carried out to adapt, rehabilitate and enhance its value for visitors.

The project is being carried out thanks to the aid of 63,726.13 euros granted to the Town Hall as part of the Leader Local Development Strategies within the framework of the Andalusian Rural Development Programme (PDR) in the municipality of Zurgena, which represents the total financing of the work.

The project consists of restoring the Torre del Reloj building, repairing the clock machinery inside and adapting the surrounding areas, including an archaeological study. The Town Council, which has already received an advance payment of 31,863.11 euros, seeks to revalue an asset of heritage interest and at the same time provide the population with a new recreational area.

The Castle Quarter is located on what used to be an old fortress, at the foot of the hill, guarded by the Clock Tower. In the past there were caves dug into the hill itself, which were replaced by social housing at the beginning of the 1990s. This environment extends to the Parish Church of San Ramón Nonnato, a construction dating from the 16th century, with a coffered ceiling belonging to the late Mudejar style. The area is therefore a historic quarter, worthy of being cared for, valued and interpreted, both for the residents themselves and for potential visitors.
