If you’re anything like me, when you walk past the door of an artisan’s workshop and the door’s slightly open, you can’t help wondering ‘What are they doing in there?’ and you wish you could go in. Well, you’re in for a treat! This weekend 15 artisans from the Corralón del Pelícano open their doors to the public. It’s not signposted, but you’ll find the entrance at number 4 Plaza de Pelícano, nestled in the corner of the square next to Hipermercado Bazar.
As you step through the gates and onto the cobbled lanes, you feel as if you’re leaving the city of Seville behind. The bougainvillea tumbles over the workshops – some 40 in total – and the noise of the traffic disappears, replaced by the chopping of wood, drilling, and the gentle hammering of metal. The people who use the workshops are mainly artisans and artists, but there are also musicians. You’ll find rehearsal areas and a co-working space too. Don’t miss it!
