    Situated near Poris de Abona on the island of Tenerife (out towards the lighthouse)
    Status: Seems abandoned and a haunt for the local taggers, it’s a little run down and would have been a better find maybe 10 years ago..

    I would love to give this place a bit of history, but being military and Spanish id say my chances of finding anything on the net are pretty slim.
    As I walked towards the gate…..

    The size of the camp became more apparent , wow its huge passing the first building on the left which had that “Alamo†look about it…Then a quick nosey in the generator house , which had still the remains of a couple of generators.
    Its hard to know which way to explore first as there is so much of it , I opted for the large official looking building….

    Todo por la patria….Everything for the people
