EMR, a company of the TORRESCAMARA group specialized in the restoration and conservation of the Historical and Artistic Heritage, has recently been awarded the restoration works for the church of the monumental complex of the Monastery of Santa María de Sobrado dos Monxes (Coruña) and the emergency works of the Church of Our Lady of the Assumption in Monreal de Ariza (Zaragoza).

The Monastery of Santa María de Sobrado dos Monxes, founded in 952, is located on the Coastal Route of Santiago. Its monumental church dates from the late seventeenth century, and the works to be done in it consist of the restoration of the main facade, the replacement of all the roofs and the restoration of the vaults and interior walls of the temple.
The works have been promoted by the Department of Culture, Education and University Planning of the Xunta de Galicia, and have a budget of 1.4 million euros.

The Romanesque church of Our Lady of the Assumption in Monreal de Ariza dates from between the XII and XIII centuries, being extended in the XVII, and at the moment it is closed and propped up for more than 57 years, running risk of collapse.
The works awarded to EMR, promoted by the Ministry of Development and with an amount of € 630,000, are aimed at recovering the stability of the monument, which implies various works such as replacing the roof and its wooden structure, tying and injections in badly damaged walls, the reinforcement of vaults, the recovery of the vaults and the collapsed arch and the stabilization of the wall by means of anchors for the recovery of access currently sunk by the serious problems of earth pressure
