información del sitio
El Pósito, an ancient building from the 19th century, was first built as a granary and transformed, some years later, into a prison. In 1975 it even became a Special Needs School. After its recent and careful restoration, it has been conceived as a touristic and cultural space, example of our city. The centre includes all the history and the heritage of Linares, where mining, bullfighting and flamenco hold a prominent position.
