Green Fire

Millions of years ago, the mining basins were a vast forest of ferns, todeas and echisetum. Thanks to photosynthesis and cellular respiration, these plant species made up a veritable storehouse of energy that led to the discovery and exploitation of coal deposits last century. The old boiler room has been colonized by impressive specimens of trees and plants brought from Oceania. This symbiosis between industry and nature leaves us with a clear moral: without vegetation, human life on Earth is not possible.

Turn on La Térmica

Are you capable of starting up a thermal power plant in 15 minutes? Take control of the control room with Virtual Reality glasses and a joystick in Enciende La Térmica. Get to know all the ins and outs of the power plant and discover the electricity generation process in an immersive 3D journey, from the arrival of the coal shipment to the inside of the cooling towers. Undoubtedly, an experience that will not leave you indifferent.

The industrial town of As Veigas

This exhibition brings us closer to that time, to the architecture of the 40s and 50s, to the industrial paternalism, to the work spaces, but also to the family and social spaces, showing us the day to day life of an essential period in the history of As Pontes de García Rodríguez (A Coruña). This is possible thanks to the photographer Manolo Vila, a true notary of the life of this community.
