The Council of Ministers declares the culture of esparto Intangible Cultural Heritage (23/04/2019)

The Council of Ministers has declared the esparto culture as a representative manifestation of the Intangible Cultural Heritage.

It was approved last Wednesday, but has effect from today, once the resolution has been published in the BOE.

In Jumilla, esparto grass was an economic source of first order during the first half of the last century.

In addition, the municipality has in the Ethnography section of the Municipal Museum Jerónimo Molina with a large area dedicated to Esparto, cataloged as the best in the Region of Murcia.

Likewise, in recent years, workshops and activities have been organized with the aim of ensuring that their culture is not lost.

The esparto culture in Spain is currently considered one of the most important and representative immaterial manifestations due to its high cultural and environmental value.

In a context of unprecedented technological and economic globalization, a large part of this heritage, still alive, is rapidly deteriorating.

The protection of this heritage could prevent the loss of ancestral knowledge belonging to a millenary culture common to Spain and the Mediterranean.
