Just out the back of IH Barcelona, literally on the other side of the street, there's a lovely old piece of Modernista industrial architecture, of which only the façade (above) and the shell of the building has survived.
You'll find further information here (in Spanish), along with a photo of the street — Carrer Ortigosa — when it was still cobbled (and with not a car in sight!)
It had been abandoned but work has now started on renovating it, as you can see in the photo below:

We never imagined when we posted a photo of it six years ago that one day we'd be moving in. That's right, because some time before Christmas (we hope!), we'll have new classrooms just across the road.
We'll keep you posted.
