What used to be a restaurant, is now a concrete complex filled with street art pieces from both acclaimed artists and street art enthusiasts, having been the stage to Iminente, a music & urban art festival curated by Vhils. It’s the perfect place to wrap up this adventure where the surrounding woods contrast with the wide views of the city.
