Burgos Security Paper Mill is a production centre of the industrial plant currently known as Fábrica Nacional de Moneda y Timbre - Real Casa de la Moneda, FNMT-RCM (National Mint and Stamp Corporation – Royal Spanish Mint). Burgos Paper Mill is the only plant belonging to this establishment of state control (the FNMT-RCM) located out of Madrid, and the oldest among the FNMT’s present facilities, as it was launched in 1952. This research sets out and explains several historical matters, such as why and how the FNMT became banknote manufacturer, the reasons for the setting of an own paper mill and its location in Burgos, as well as a historical analysis of the project, the construction of the factory and its first decades of industrial activity. Finally, an urban and architectonic contextualization of the paper mill concludes with its characterization as industrial heritage.
