Before the arrival of the British consistory Riotinto (Huelva) in 1873, the village of La Mina, was the closest to the mining, and subsequently due to the progress of work extraction disappear. If the British company began the destruction of primeval town of Riotinto, also began construction currently is: Minas de Riotinto. The environment has since 2012 with the protection category Patrimonial Zone. The British stage has been key in the achievement of said heritage category, so that Riotinto's well-known heritage is above all British, with its architecture, methods of exploitation, social improvements, communications and archaeological discoveries, which today they have converted the municipal terms of El Campillo, Minas de Riotinto and Nerva into the Heritage Zone. The oversizing of a single sign of identity has reduced the cultural richness of an entire community. Therefore, the present work tries to approach the way of life of the local community from a holistic approach that approximates to what until now has not been contemplated, showing itself inclusively with those aspects that go beyond the individual, framing it in its group and community reality where the family represents a backbone; beyond the formal aspects, where the knowledge of the informal modes of relation are illuminating of the collective dynamics and; surpassing the unilinear vision of industrial capitalism, which reduced everything that did not accept the definition of capital or industrial relations stricto senso to the invisible, translating in the present patrimony in the absent, category that denotes the irrelevance given to aspects that are fundamental from a ecological, sociological, historical, anthropological and cultural point of view.
