This old chimney, dating from the 20th century, is currently listed as a Historical Heritage of the town. Its history dates back to the industrial boom that the region had thanks to the increase in livestock activity. This led to the construction of an innumerable number of factories, which needed these chimneys to be able to evacuate the gases and fumes they produced.
Basilio's chimney, as well as the other four found in the region, has an average height of about 20 meters.
They were built in brick from the inside, by a single person who climbed the wall until reaching the desired height.
Currently, these chimneys preside over different squares or gardens, as a sign of the industrial importance that the town had.
