Here we have one of the industrial veins that connected the UK with Asturias long ago. Once upon a time, in the early nineth century, the Indusrtial Revolution crossed down south the ocean and reached, through the Cantabrian Sea, the Spanish coast. So did Michael Robinson nearly a couple of centuries later, ...but he stayed.
The complex includes the information on mining activity that developed in the coalfields of Asturias from the 18th century as well as the history of coal mining, the Industrial Revolution, and technological advances in the field of coal mining. The main building comprises a cylindrical central area with a tower. Two aisles are attached to the main building and are home to numerous exhibition halls, and other services. Apart from the extensive exhibits and machinery on display, a simulated underground mine can be accessed by a cage, and is considered the main attraction of the museum.
Arnao Mine is one of the most important minig heritage of Spain. Located in a spectacular coast scenery, it is the oldest coal mine in the Iberian Peninsula, the oldest vertical mine pit in Asturias and the only submarine mine in Europe. The mine was closed in 1915.
Against modern Football, a neighbouhood football club keeps the faith since 1946, believing that others than current values must lead this game.
Unión Club Ceares has kept going since 1946 thanks mainly to the selfless collaboration of its socios (paid up supporters of the club). Since 2011 we have aimed to make the club more participative by turning these supporters into the main players not only on paper but in practice. This means giving them a real say in the decision making at the club. As at all clubs, a group of socios make up a board of directors; the body which takes care of the day to day running of the club. In our case the board is always dependent on the mandate from the Supporters Assembly.
