The President of the Andalusian Regional Government visits the Towers of Hercules

Juanma Moreno visited last Thursday 2 June the emblematic building, located in the town of Los Barrios (Cadiz), which joined the NYESA Group in 2019. The president of the Junta highlighted the enormous "capabilities" and "potential" of the Campo de Gibraltar.

The president of the Junta de Andalucía took advantage of his visit to the towns of La Línea de la Concepción and Algeciras to visit what is undoubtedly one of the architectural landmarks of Andalusia, where he gave an interview to the Área de Comunicación Group, whose studios are located in the building.

The marvellous complex, designed by the Cordovan architect Rafael de La-Hoz Castanys, is located in the Las Marismas del Río Palmones Business and Technology Park, in the town of Los Barrios (Cádiz) and joined the NYESA Group in March 2019, with 92 offices, two commercial premises and 144 parking spaces.

During the meeting, Juanma Moreno underlined the "capabilities and potential" of the Campo de Gibraltar, to become one of the "most powerful regions in economic terms and in terms of progress".

To the potential value of the building is added its valued location in one of the areas with the greatest number of opportunities, among other reasons, for its valuable proximity to the port of Algeciras, one of the most important in Europe. In this sense, the President of the Junta placed special emphasis on the city of Cádiz and its port, which he defined as the most important in Spain, generator of "a great number of opportunities and progress".

Juanma Moreno also emphasised the value of the industrial sector in Campo de Gibraltar, well above the average in Andalusia, and the importance that the incorporation of technological sectors, which are very interested in the area, will have in the near future. The large investment groups," he said, "want to continue investing in this area, which will have an important quantitative and qualitative leap".

Portentous exterior

At the time of its inauguration - October 2009 - it became the tallest building in Andalusia, with a height of 126 metres. At present, it is second only to the Torre Pelli in Seville.

But it is undoubtedly its portentous exterior that gives the complex its fascinating particularity. A beautiful concrete latticework completely envelops the complex, on which one can read, in the form of a hieroglyphic inscription, the legendary "Non Plus Ultra", in reference to the legendary Pillars of Hercules.

The originality of the lattice also favours the natural lighting of the interiors and the contemplation of unique views over the Bay of Algeciras, the Rock of Gibraltar and the Serranía.
