Tourism Competitiveness Plan for the Biosphere Reserve of La Rioja: “The Man-Made Landscape”

Ruins of old water mills are a constant sight in many spots throughout the valleys of La Rioja. These ruins are traces of a life linked to the field and subsistence in a relatively recent period.

Restoring heritage assets associated to water related activities, such as the famous millstone quarries or the consolidation of some watermills, are basic elements to develop in the Plan.

Objectives: 
  • To restore heritage elements associated to water related activities
  • To interpret the millstone quarries
  • To clean and consolidate the Cubo mill
  • To restore the path towards Umbría
