An excellent documentary by Aragón Urbex program broadcast by Aragón TV

Aliaga, the ruins of what was once the most important thermal power plant in Spain

This Wednesday I got a surprise on Aragón TV, a regional television channel that I had never seen until now (I live in Galicia).

The Gordejuela Water Elevator, one of the most beautiful ruined buildings in Spain
The hidden and magical beauty of Asturias in a ruined resort and an abandoned town

My surprise was to find that on that channel they broadcast a program dedicated to urban exploration, titled "Lugares Olvidados, Aragón Urbex" (Forgotten Places, Aragón Urbex), produced by SinPalabras Creativos and presented by journalist Adrián Buenaventura. On this topic, which has gained many fans in recent years, until now I had only seen one program on television, but made in the United States, titled "Abandoned Engineering" and which is broadcast in Spain on the DMAX channel.

Aragón Urbex has a high quality production that is very reminiscent of that of Aventuras Entresierras (my favorite YouTube channel), but with the advantage, of course, of having the means of a public television channel. My surprise was to find out today that Aragón Urbex has its own YouTube channel, in which they have been publishing content for three months.

The program I saw this Wednesday is about the Aliaga Thermal Power Plant, in the province of Teruel, a huge building that was the most important thermal power plant in Spain at the time. It was built in 1949 and inaugurated in 1952, taking advantage of the Aliaga coal mines, having enormous boilers 76 meters long and 36 meters high. The fate of this plant was linked to that of those coal mines and when these were exhausted, the plant ended up closing in 1982. The Aragón Urbex program shows this colossal abandoned building inside and interviews some of its former workers (the video is in Spanish, you can activate the automatic English subtitles in the bottom bar of the player):

You can see below these lines some screenshots of this excellent report, which shows how this plant worked and what the work of those who worked there was like. Congratulations to Aragón TV and SinPalabras Creativos for this program, I found it very interesting and very well done.
