Through the “Open for restoration” programme, guided tours may be taken free of charge and on an occasional basis of the sites and buildings in the process of restoration. This initiative is a unique opportunity to see the work that is being carried out by architects, archaeologists and restorers for yourself.

The Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport is organising a new edition of the programme with guided tours of sites undergoing restoration: “Open for restoration”. This initiative by the Spanish Cultural Heritage Institute (IPCE) shows the public cultural assets being restored, which are of note both due to their special value as heritage and their unique conservation processes.

Morning and afternoon visits will take place from 2 July to 26 October. To take part, simply register in advance on the website www.abiertoporrestauracion2018.es

Monuments that can be visited

Church of San Miguel de Lillo (Oviedo): is one of the pre-Romanesque churches in Asturias that has been awarded World Heritage designation by the UNESCO. The work carried out on the church is focussed on the restoration of mural paintings, as well as the structural revision of walls and vaults. The water tightness of its exterior walls is also tested to prevent moisture accumulation. Programme visits take place on Mondays.

Monastery of San Pedro de Arlanza (Hortigüela, Burgos): this monastery complex was founded in 912 and became one of the most important monasteries in the Kingdom of Castile. The planned work aims to guarantee conservation of the complex and improve access for the public. This includes installing information panels, wooden ramps and special flooring to improve accessibility and expand the visitor route. The monument can be visited from Thursday to Sunday.
