Visit the old train/railway station in Artà, a monument of industrialization
It’s worth noting, that the project was promoted with private funds, mainly from the wealthy businessman, Rafel Blanes. The station and the group of secondary buildings, were raised at the sides of the railway track, on the stretch along Costa i Llobera avenue.
The train stopped working in 1997, leaving these group of buildings unusable for several years. The main building, of perfect symmetry, has three floors and rectangular shape. The lintels over the windows are decorated with geometric motifs of red and white ceramic. They are worth a look! Beside, we find an old coal cellar and the toilets. Finally, in the area we find three more buildings that are private properties nowadays.
