Royal Tin Factory of San Miguel (Júzcar)
In the year 1.725 by royal order of Philip V and within a secret military project, the first industrial factory in Spain was built, with the aim of manufacturing the tin that coated the Spanish galleons during the XNUMXth century.
Legend has it that the German engineers who had the formula to create tinplate were kidnapped and transferred in wine barrels to the Royal Factory of San Miguel, in the heart of the Genal Valley, in the municipal area of the town of Júzcar, also known as the Town of the Smurfs.
Due to its location, almost inaccessible to humans in the XNUMXth century. The mass of trees in its surroundings, necessary as fuel and surrounded by the waters of the Genal River, necessary to temper the tinplate, made the location the perfect setting for the installation of La Real Fábrica de San Miguel, the first factory for industrial purposes. military, where the tinplate that covered the hulls of the Spanish galleons was manufactured.
The tin was transported by camels to the Port of Estepona, from where it was transferred by boat to the shipyards in Cádiz.
The Royal Tin Factory Winery was in operation until the end of the XNUMXth century, at which point the French troops invaded Spain and the factory was abandoned. To this day, it has only served as a refuge for bandits who used the Royal Factory to hide from French troops, in the Serranía de Ronda
Three centuries of history contemplate the Royal Tin Factory that in 2.013 was bought and restored, following the original techniques and materials, a dream to flourish again as a natural wine cellar.
La Real Fábrica today is a natural wine cellar that has rooms where you can live a 360 experience for lovers of wine, nature and respect for the environment. A 3 ha vineyard with four varieties; Pinot noir, Moorish Muscat, Tintilla de Rota and Garnacha, with which excellent natural wines are made.
