During the visit to La Fábrica de Luz. Museo de la Energía, the visitor learns how the electricity was produced from coal combustion in the beginning of last century and discovers the particularities and anecdotes of that society; how they lived, how they worked, how they enjoyed and how the use of a natural resource like coal represented the driving force for the territory and its inhabitants.

Considered one of the jewels of the Spanish industrial heritage, the restoration has been carried out with the greatest of efforts at preserving the original elements of the power plant. The restoration has also made it possible to recoup one of the jewels of Spain’s mining heritage for new cultural uses.
