Glad to open the Ecuadorian chapter of this page.
At the shores of the Machangara river there lies an ancient abandoned flour mill . Molinos el Censo , founded in 1906 it hosted the biggest flour mill in the country, its products supplied the wole city of Quito ad many others in Ecuador. the mills kept working up until 2009 year in wich they were closed, since then the building has been abandoned. In the sorroundigs of parque el Sena there are many structures and ruins many of them currently unaccesible, they all belonged to the ancient flour complex. This place parque el Sena is known as red zone in Quito, the criminal activity is high and it isnt rare that bodies and drug packages appear in this place.
As a fun fact many of the ancient machinery is intact, keep in mind it has more than a 100 years, its a very nice time capsule. well with the short intro.
proceed under your own risk......
