Spanish term or phrase: Recepcion en Campa
I'm editing an inspection record from Spain. The full phrase is a title of an inspection record: "Control de Inspección de Torres a la Recepción en Campa"

My research turned up that "Recepcion" is a visitors building in an archaelogical park in Campa, Spain.

The current translation is: "Tower Inspection Control for Storage Receipt"

I would translate this as: "Tower Quality Control Inspection for the Visitors Building in Campa"

Am I missing something here?

garbled source text?

If the report refers to the 'Campa Torres' site mentioned here:

... then it would seem that the Spanish title of the report is garbled. It would make more sense like this:

"Control de Inspección de la Recepción en Campa Torres"
--> (something like)
Inspection of the visitor reception facilities at Campa Torres.

On the same assuption as before, there's more info and photos about the site here: http://www.infoasturias.com/action/InfoasturiasFichaRecurso?...

It says the 'Reception Building' is in a bunker built during the Spanish Civil War - so there will not be any kind of 'tower' involved.
