Drone flyover and interior video with music... and the history:


The T.B. Hospital story from the link, translated:

In the solitude of the Baja California desert, peaceful among huge rocks and vigilant cardons, right on the edge of the Sierra de La Laguna Biosphere Reserve, an imposing person who slept waiting to fulfill his function: the hospital of the "Carrizalito" a work carried out by the then governor of the Territory of Baja California Sur, General Francisco J. Múgica (1940-1946), carried out with the purpose of serving the inhabitants who had contracted tuberculosis, a contagious disease that struck 23% of the population of the peninsular territory.

However, the destination ran another address for this property, since for the year 1947 is when the antibiotic is discovered for the treatment of this infection, leaving unnecessary this great health infrastructure, which never opened its doors and was delivered to abandonment , the rust occurred between hinges, rails and gates of the time, the walls were covered in mold, wasp houses and messages from other visitors from other decades who came to admire this building.

A silent interior deadens the senses of those who walk contemplating the corridors, trying to interpret the spaces destined for healing, today spaces for the appreciation of a work that will remain as a vestige of the architectural past of our land.

Love that tree on the roof at 1:24. Wonder what the ultimate plan was to power this place? Solar wasn't an option at that point. It's pretty remote I imagine.

Like other places in Baja, a generator perhaps? 1940s may have not been very dependent on electric power.

Nuclear power, see my other post. Research facility, abandoned after nuclear accident in 1947. Very hush, hush stuff.

Yes, I saw that... I think that is as valid as any explanation!
