Another abandoned Spanish village: Moralejo de Arriba

Post by XTreme » Sun Feb 09, 2020 4:41 pm

Another abandoned Spanish village.......Moralejo de Arriba in the Murcia province.

Apparently it never had electricity or water, and the last inhabitants left in 1985.

This is hardcore shit on a truly industrial scale!

@XTreme you need to be careful you don't break a hip or something at your age on those rough roads!

Incredible. I wonder if it could be used as "unofficial" temporary accommodation (instead of a tent!)?
