Imagine an abandoned factory turned into a house of art.
A bus trip to Granollers, around 35 km outside Barcelona, brought us face to face with something quite spectacular. We entered the industrial area and saw an old worn-out textile industry. The Catalan region was known for its textile production back in the days.
Anyway, upon entering the premises, instead of hard-working labour and gruelling machine noises, there’s a quiet environment with graffitis. There are coordinators at the entrance of different buildings and what dwells inside of those buildings are historic artefacts, exhibits of space exploration and other forms of art. The setup all around is the same as that of a factory in the old days. The rusty pipes, big cylinders with numerous gauge meters, narrow hallways and iron stairs and that smell of course.
We walked around, touched books and pictures that were thousands of years old, heard the evolution of space exploration and were nothing but astonished. The place now regularly hosts art exhibits and concerts.
Later that day we got to see more of the town of Granollers which somewhat looks like Cuba. The colourful houses, sunny streets, people chatting under the tree shade in their bright clothes and lots of such stuff. Personally, I loved wandering around those streets. We finished by visiting another gallery which featured works from Martin Parr and other talented artists.
Soon we hopped back on our bus and everyone got back to their business. One thing is for sure. That place left a lasting impression.
Thank you @grisart_escola, @albert_gusi and @rafabadia64 for this.
