First steps taken in Velez-Blanco castle rehabilitation project

THE Junta awarded the €141,065 contract to draft plans for restoring Velez-Blanco castle to a Granada architectural and engineering firm.

Confirming the contract, Culture delegate Eloisa Cabrera said that the team had been given a 32-month deadline to produce an action plan for the first phase of renovations.

With a €1.3 million budget, this initial phase – expected to take 15 months to complete – will centre on the castle roofs, the Homenaje tower, the principal rooms open to the public and access to the first courtyard.

The timetable for the extensive repairs needed for the castle, built between 1506 and 1515, has been based on the inspection that was carried out in March 2020 to analyse the state of building and decide which sections were most in need of urgent attention.
