Resin Museum (Quintanas de Gormaz)

Around 1927, Laureano Soria, the mayor of Quintanas de Gormaz, had the idea of building schools to meet the village’s educational needs. In order to carry out this project, he used a great part of the income from the town’s resin extraction industry. He ordered Ramón Martiarena, an architect living in Soria, to design the buildings which are completely unique in the province of Soria, and possibly even in Spain. The architect’s design was based on the expression of originality influenced by other architectonical trends at the time.

 

It is precisely in this magnificent building where the Resin Museum is located. On the second floor which used to be the teachers’ residence, there is an exhibit that is solely dedicated to resin extraction. It is a lively museum that offers a trip through time focusing on the importance that resin has had in the past, present and how it can affect the future. This natural product can be used in multiple ways and it is an interesting resource that can be used in all types of laboratories, whether it be chemical engineering, pharmaceuticals or even electrical engineering.

 

These raw materials extracted from pine trees that are well present in our forests are the perfect example of natural wealth and sustainable economy. Forests not only give us resin, but they produce oxygen, avoid desertification and slow down climate change.
