Restoration of Neveras - constructions used for storing goods by means of snow

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

A large number of neveras can be found in the municipalities included in the Biosphere Reserve and their surroundings.

The major role played by snow was due to the fact that people started collecting this basic commodity thanks to its capacity for preserving food and its properties in the medical field. The arrival of industrial ice meant a drop in the amount of neveras, which are now a rural asset worth preserving.

Objectives: 
  • To restore heritage elements linked to water related activities
  • To offer the tourist open spaces that can be visited
