Our Neigborhood

The Aranjuez neighborhood was founded in 1882 by Juan Aranjuez of Spain.

The first electrical plant, inaugurated on August 9, 1884, was built in Aranjuez on the southwest corner of the the Calderon Guardia Hospital.

With this lighting that consisted of 25 lamps, San Jose became the third city in the world, and the first in Latin America to have electrical lighting, preceded only by Paris and New York.
