Land Rover advert stars only two inhabitants in Teruel village
03 January 2019 @ 18:50

THE last two remaining inhabitants in a Teruel-province village are the stars of the show in a new TV advert.

Martín and Sinforosa have lived in La Estrella, a Hamlet with a population of two, all their lives, and have had no neighbours for 35 years.

“It’s quite a lot, isn’t it?” Martín says in the new Land Rover advert.

The couple was interviewed by the regional newspaper, El Heraldo de Aragón, four years ago and the surprising features of their day-to-day revealed in the story are now shown on the television commercial.

“Our son doesn’t want us to live here, but at the moment we’re in good health and we don’t want to move,” Sinforosa explains.

Now in their late 80s, Sinforosa and Martín have watched their friends, neighbours and family gradually leaving the village, where they live without running water or electricity.

They have to go to a pump every day and carry vats of water home – but this does not bother them.

For power, they rely on a generator, and they do not even have a clock – to find out the time, they use a sundial.
