Alfoli de la Sal reviews
What a fantastic Museum which explains the historical development of the L'Escala area.. The exhibits and video presentations are excellent. The Museum was opened 2 years ago and is housed in an old..... more »
Lovely place to visit and hold very lovely and intimate concerts.
This iconic building dates back to the 17C. With its vaulted ceilings, elegant windows and internal courtyard one might at first think it was built as a palace but in fact it was part of a system for controlling and taxing the movement of a precious commodity - salt! Alfoli de la Sal can be translated as 'Salt Warehouse' and the building was used as such until 1916. For almost 100 years after it lay derelict but over the past few years the Ajuntament of l'Escala (town hall) has gradually restored the Alfoli until now it is probably in a better state than it ever was. On the ground floor there are exhibition and meeting places and on the first floor, (only recently open to the public) there is a superb permanent museum, beautifully set out with audio visuals in four languages, artefacts chosen for their significance and relevance and numerous maps and photos. Well worth a visit in fact, unmissable!
