Aragon’s regional minister for Education, Culture and Sport, Mayte Pérez, and the General Manager of Transmission Division of Red Eléctrica de España, Eva Pagán, visited the San Victorián monastery upon the completion of the works financed by the company to illuminate inside the tower and the stairway that leads up it, in order to ensure that visitors can visit this monument safely. This project has also allowed a quality electricity supply to be installed inside the monument, which will extend its possibilities in terms of tourism and cultural uses.

The monastery, the Real Monasterio de San Victorián to give it its full title, is located in the municipality of El Pueyo de Araguás, in Huesca, and it is one of the jewels of Aragon’s historic heritage. Declared a Cultural Interest Site by Aragon’s Regional Government in 2002, this monastic monument was built in the 16th Century on the site of some previous remains, which some experts date back to the 6th Century.

The monastery lighting project is part of Red Eléctrica’s commitment to sustainability, which it articulates through its contribution to the development of the environment, among other key priorities. The company has been working with Aragon’s Regional Government for several years now to develop action plans within this territory, encompassing areas such as biodiversity and raising awareness about forest fires. It also collaborates with numerous social organisations and local councils.
