The port city of Sagunto is located on the Mediterranean Sea, in Eastern Spain, about 30 km north of Valencia. The city was found more than 2,200 years old, but its modern history goes back by only a hundred years when the steel industry was found here. The steel industry began to flourish, continuing production until the 80s, when overproduction along with rapidly rising labor costs drove profit margins down forcing the industries to shut down.

The Mediterranean Blast Furnace Factory, that had its complex near the port, put out its fire in 1984, and soon began dismantling the facility and its furnaces. One was left behind as a relic of Sagunto’s brief industrial age. This blast furnace, designated Blast Furnace No. 2, is the only one surviving furnace out of three that were operating during the steel industry boom in Sagunto.
