This beautiful abandoned town is one of many located on the banks of the Yesa Reservoir in Northern Spain. Constructed sometime in the 11th or 12th century, Esco ( or Escó) was abandoned 50 years ago because of the decision to dam a nearby river.
Exploring this location was on my urbex wish list, the bright blue water, and crumbling cathedral caught my eye, and I was hoping we could head that direction and make a travel vlog about it.
When we arrived to the ruins, we found exactly the experience we were looking for. No one was there, and we could explore in peace. Generally these places have a scary, or haunted vibe to them. Esco was peaceful, beautiful, and completely in ruins.
Every house was abandoned except one, where a local sheep farmer had repaired one enough to live in. A man alone, living in a ghost town.
This abandoned city was a wild adventure. Soooo happy we could get into the tower. It made the trip. What do you think? Should I have walked on the wooden floor?
