ALCOA Plant Chaguaramas - From Western Main Road, Trinidad and Tobago
The ALCOA Plant Chaguaramas in Trinidad and Tobago is one of the most iconic industrial sites in the Caribbean. It was once upon a time the largest aluminum smelter in the world! Nowadays, it is a symbol of a forgotten industry and reflects the country's turbulent economic past. The plant is located on an old British naval base, surrounded by a breathtaking landscape. It is an important wildlife habitat, and a popular spot for birdwatchers and photographers. Visitors can explore the abandoned industrial buildings, see the green-bronze patina emerging from aluminum tanks, and watch the giant smokestacks that still rise from the sea. There are many opportunities for reflection and contemplation in this serene, beautiful place!
