Along Calle Regina (map), a street only recently known more for crime that crepes, there is a building that stands alone. Whilst the rest of the street, and some surrounding streets, were regenerated a couple of years ago, with new pedestrianised areas, fresh paint splashed everywhere and trendy bars and restaurants opened up to cater for a new crowd, this one building got left behind. It remains with its old, peeling and faded coat of paint, many decades old. But it is not an eyesore, by any means.
It has its charm, and the front of the building has had changing murals on ply boards affixed to its front. As per the photos below. But I do wonder what the story behind this lonely building is. Why has it so stubbornly refused to be dragged into the 21st century? Who owns it? What does the future hold….if you know, please do tell!
