The aim of this youth volunteer project is to improve the streets of the Villamardones abandoned village with a view to including it in the Valderejo Natural Park trail in the future, as it could help visitors understand village life in the first half of the 20th century.
To do this, its surroundings require maintenance and, for this reason, the first task that participants in this youth volunteer project will carry out is the restoration of the Villamardones fountain, located at the entrance to the village. It is currently partially hidden by undergrowth and rubble. The work will have technical support provided by an architect and an archaeologist, for the reconstruction of items that may be found around the fountain (documentary evidence confirms the existence of a horseshoeing frame and a trough).
