On Sunday 17 March, the Poveda Socio-educational and Cultural Association -- ASCP in Linares (Jaen province in Spain) hosted a cultural outing organised by the prison chaplaincy of the diocese of Jaen.

These outings are part of the prison ministries programme that are intended to provide some respite for the inmates according to the prison's respect module.

The Poveda ASC is a civil organisation managed by the Teresian Association in Linares that regularly collaborates in this initiative. The mining landscape of Linares is an ideal setting for activities like this.

On Sunday 17 March, 17 members of the ASCP were joined by 11 prisoners who came from Jaen together with 5 volunteers from the prison chaplaincy and a prison official.

After a traditional breakfast of chocolate with churros, the hikers began their trek. On this occasion, the guide was Isaac Peralta who knows a lot about local mining and is a volunteer with the ASCP.
