|Centenera is easily reached from
Graus. Leave Graus in northern direction
towards Campo and Castejón de Sos. Turn right for La Puebla de Fantova.
Once there do not enter the village, but continue straight-on towards Centenera and Abenozas. The construction is next to the road just before you cross the Barranco de la Ribera (or de Pinares). Our latest visit was on invitation of the owners who did quite a good job in removing the luxuriant vegetation, making it a much easier job for us than in 1998.

|The door behind the trough opens to
a small room with switches and insulators of the power station. Some narrow
stairs are leading down into the level where the generator was located. The picture
shows (from right to left) first a diesel engine (removed between 1998 and 2004), then
the much smaller alternator and lastly an empty black switch panel.
A map from the 1950s has the mill labeled Molino de aceite and Fábrica de Luz and power lines are drawn towards Centenera, the houses of Fantova next to the Castle, La Puebla de Fantova and the isolated houses of Rabinaco. That is quite something. Even more if we look at the specs of the dynamo.
