Dr. Fructuoso Martínez Rojo, born in Boñar in 1827 and a member of a dynasty of pharmacists, was the founder of the Sabero pharmacy. He opened the establishment in Sabero between the years of 1857 and 1859, and at the same time proceeded to buy a building in the neighbourhood of Rebedul, in which he cultivated a botanical garden or a garden of medicinal plants for use in the pharmacy.

 

The location of the pharmacy within the steel mining complex was an important step forward in the concept of social attention to the working class, as the new forms of production brought about frequent accidents and work injuries, fractures and wounds as well as serious problems of poisoning and pulmonary affectations. The pharmacist applied his healing treatments using the medicine which was prepared in the same pharmacy, and up until the first half of the last century, they could be presented in three groups: natural drugs (quinine), the so-called medicinal multi-drugs (magna antidote) all of which were prepared by the chemist himself, and the first medicines manufactured known as pharmaceutical specialities, among which we can find the popular Selz salt. The pharmacies services linked from the very first moment to the Forge installation, has remained uninterrupted until this day. From 1930 onward its activity of public attention was increased by the inauguration of the Izaguirre Hospital.
