The Minera Culture Foundation starts the tourism project for the Bierzo Alto with the launch of the "Memory of Torre" action, a special tribute to the wealth that coal gave to its mining basin, and to all those who left their effort, and sometimes his life, in the mine. The museum is located in the building assigned by the Viloria family for use as a museum-exhibition. It consists of a collection of photographs, data and documents; A sample of traditional mining machinery, the old ships of the Viloria group have also been assigned to host this sample of tools used to extract coal; and the gold mine, which will be visited in the short term and images of mining tillage will be projected inside.
