Things to do: sightseeing
Puertollano is an industrial city in province of Ciudad Real, Castile-La Mancha, Spain. It is situated on the AVE High Speed Train line linking Madrid and Seville (opened 1992). The city has a population of 51,842 (2009).Legend of the lieThe name of Puertollano is a concatenation of "puerto" and "llano" . It is often said that "Puertollano is the town of two lies", because of the polysemy of the Spanish word "puerto", which means both "pass" and "port". People often say that "Puertollano doesn't have a port neither it is flat" . It is partly built on the slopes of the surrounding Sierra Morena mountains.EconomyPuertollano is the largest industrial center in the Castilla-La Mancha region. It was formerly a coal mining town but today only one open-cast mine remains. Nowadays the main industries are petrochemicals (REPSOL), fertilisers (Fertiberia), power generation and, most recently, the manufacture of solar panels. The city has received national and EU aid to diversify its economy after the decline of the coal industry.HistoryArchaeological investigations have shown that the area was inhabited in prehistoric times (Homo heidelbergensis and Homo antecessor). Bronze Age weapons have been found and also a Visigoth necropolis from the post-Roman period.
