José Cabrera nuclear power plant (also known as José Cabrera in English or Zorita[1]) is a nuclear power station in Almonacid de Zorita, 70 kilometers (45 miles) east of Madrid, Spain.

The power plant consists of a single PWR of 160MWe. Construction began in 1964, and commercial operation in 1968. The reactor is due to be dismantled in 2006.

Central nuclear José Cabrera is the plant name in Spanish, and the name of a 1969 documentary film concerning the plant.
