San Javier will recover the windmill of arcaduces "El Maestre" (30/11/2017)

The mill known as "El Maestre", located in Alto del Villar, in San Javier, will be the subject of a partial rehabilitation action that will consist of the internal and external lining of its structure to guarantee the preservation of the construction that is cataloged as Good of Cultural Interest.

The councilman of Culture, David Martinez reported today that the work of restoration of the mill, located on a municipal plot in the parking area of ​​the Hispania shopping center, includes the addition of a spire and blades, which currently lacks, among others recovery actions of the original construction.

The works, which will begin in early 2018, have a budget of 80,000 euros financed through the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Environment with an expenditure that has already been authorized by the Governing Council of the Autonomous Community of the Region of Murcia at its meeting on November 29.

Martínez pointed out that since it is an Asset of Cultural Interest, the mill will be rehabilitated according to the protocol established for these cases by the General Directorate of Cultural Assets.

The mayor of San Javier José Miguel Luengo stressed the importance of this action "which is in line with the Government team to recover and value the artistic and cultural heritage of the municipality in order to be able to bequeath it to future generations as part of our history. "

José Miguel Luengo thanked the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Environment "his sensitivity and support for this project in which we have been working for several months and now finally will be a reality."

The mill "El Maestre" is a water extraction mill, also called an arcade windmill that dates from the late nineteenth or early twentieth century, and that served the old farm "La Maquina".

It is a construction that was common in the area of ​​the Mar Menor where the shallow depth of the water table was used to extract water and channel it to the irrigation areas.
