Organization: Saint Mary of Albarracin Foundation

The FSMA Foundation is a non-profit organization aiming at granting Albarracín, a complex medieval heritage site, the cultural landmark status it deserves, given its extraordinary heritage and scenery. Its groundbreaking heritage management project intends to promote the well-planned, sustainable development of this unique town by restoring and reactivating its rich cultural heritage.

The Santa María de Albarracín Foundation was set up in 1996 under the sponsorship of the institutions that make up its Board. Its headquarters are located at the old Episcopal Palace, previously renovated during an applied training programme, and its main goal is to take up and further develop the outstanding results obtained by prior vocational school projects.

The following goals are especially worth mentioning among its statutory guidelines:
*Social, cultural and economic development of the region.
*Restoration, preservation and management of cultural heritage.
*Promotion and boosting of its cultural and historical legacy.
*Development of different cultural and educational activities.
*Creation of new means of collaboration between different entities.
