A striking cooling tower belonging to the old Duro Felguera company steelworks houses the Steelworks Museum.

This unique building in the form of a 45-m-high truncated cone comprises a circular space distributed on two floors and covered by a skylight that offers a breathtaking view of the walls of the large chimney stack.

The tour of its rooms speaks of an era and a territory marked by the great industrial adventure of Pedro Duro, who, in the mid-19th century, created a steel factory in La Felguera that was a pioneering enterprise in Spain.

The descriptive part of the exhibition, focusing on the steel manufacturing process, is housed on the ground floor, in addition to the reception area, shop and coffee bar. A magnificent model of the factory welcomes visitors, who can also view a video on steelmaking.

On the upper floor, panels, interactive displays, models and the actual collection give visitors a closer view of the Mining Valleys, the origin and development of coal mining and the steel industry in Asturias, and the living and working conditions of workers at the beginning of the 20th century.

The visit to the museum is complemented with guided tours to the surrounding area, including a visit to the Workers' District where you can see the inside of a workers' dwelling, and the "Machinery and Time Trail", which allows you to enter a factory building where you will discover a collection of recently restored steam railway engines which were used in the factory itself.
