These shots come from a small space in Gràcia called the Jardí del Silenci (the garden of silence). This “garden” is an empty lot, where there once stood a convent. The space has now been converted into a small garden, cafe and performance space. I was lucky enough to have been brought there during the annual Festes de Gràcia, and indeed it was a nice bit of (relative) peace and quiet during the otherwise frenetic vibe that overtakes the neighbourhood during the street festivals. These are some shots from the walls of the space, which have been decorated by some artists whose work can be found all over the streets of Barcelona.
