new


This is a new shopping mall in Barcelona, which was once a bullfighting ring (I like it much better like this!) The mall has a beautiful neo-Mudejar facade dating back to 1900 and striped Moorish arches. The remodelling of the long-abandoned bullring was completed in 2011 after many years of planning and construction. . Source

  3. That's a beautiful building ! Fortunately this butchery has been abolished ! But there are still idiots who wants it back. I think they could play it together, but I am sure nobody wants to be the bull !

  4. It is very sad that any one calls these types of things sports. As long as there is outrage against this then maybe there will always be more money in turning them into shopping malls. It looks like they did a great job of converting it along with keeping it historical.

    Thanks for sharing such a great picture of it.

    Also glad that you joined us in Theme Thursday.

    God bless.

  9. What a beautiful building (and a wonderful photo). Now that is perfect recycling. I'm glad they repurposed the building instead of knocking it down.
