The celebrated model village of Bustiello is the real "gem" of the Hullera Española mining company world

Bustiello embodies the entrepreneurial and social philosophy of Hullera Española, which, located in a peripheral mining area and narrow valleys, was to monopolize local power and territorial organization. According to this model, the company took great care of the production area and developed a paternalistic social policy via which it took charge of the lives of workers beyond the workplace: housing, utilities, education, health, leisure and culture.

Bustiello is an example of all this and its Interpretation Centre constitutes a facility that has breathed new life into the village and its surroundings through the permanent exhibition and the organization of guided visits to the site. A vision of the industrial past that is both different and interesting for those in search of cultural experiences.
