The work 'Sierra Espuña, nature and culture' collects in about 800 pages the natural, patrimonial, cultural or historical values ​​of the Sierra Espuña Regional Park.

This exhaustive work, in which more than 130 specialized authors have participated in each of these fields and 80 photographers, is born with the vocation of becoming a reference encyclopedia around one of the most emblematic protected natural areas of the Region .

The book, edited by the General Directorate of the Natural Environment, gathers in first place the historical aspects of the Regional Park, for which it has condensed all the information that was dispersed and even some unpublished aspects about its history have been rescued.

The work, structured in seven chapters, also has a block dedicated to the physical environment in which the rich biodiversity of this enclave is developed in detail, as well as dealing with aspects related to the current management of the territory or the numerous activities for public use and social participation that are developed today in the Regional Park.

Regarding its cultural aspects, the work highlights both its archaeological sites and its rich intangible heritage (crafts, gastronomy or music), along with other heritage values ​​such as its network of trails, the unique buildings integrated within the Park or the hydraulic heritage.

Finally, this complete work develops the patrimonial and tourist aspects of each of the six municipalities integrated into the Sierra Espuña Tourist Association (Aledo, Alhama de Murcia, Librilla, Mula, Pliego and Totana).

The work, moreover, consists of a prologue entitled 'Against Indifference', prepared by the well-known naturalist and scientific disseminator Joaquín Araujo.

The General Director of Medio Medio, Consuelo Rosauro, highlighted that it is one of the "most complete works published on one of the most emblematic natural spaces of the Region" and thanked "the altruistic collaboration of the coordinators, authors and specialists, who they have contributed their knowledge, time and effort to create a reference work that will contribute even more to spreading the natural, environmental, cultural and patrimonial wealth of Sierra Espuña ".

In total, 600 copies have been published and will be distributed in public buildings and centers in the Region, such as libraries or visitor centers.

The book, in which the town councils integrated in the Sierra Espuña Tourist Association have collaborated, will also be available throughout this week for free download in PDF format on the website of the Directorate General for the Natural Environment.
