Ex salt warehouse Grando

/default/2017/poslovni-turizem/kongresne-dvorane/

The salt warehouses of Monfort and Grando date from the first half of the 19th century. The buildings are simply designed, but massive and imposing. They are characterized by 2.5 m thick walls and beams about 28 m long. Longer wooden beams which are positioned above them are made of a single piece wood, the longest ones in Slovenia. The building is almost 200 m long and is divided into four spans. From a historical point of view, these warehouses were important for salt makers, since they would store their yearly harvest at the end of the salt collecting season. In 2021, the Municipality of Piran restored and repaired the dilapidated roof and carried out some minor interventions in the interior of the halls. Today, the Grando warehouse serves as a special event venue for many local and international events - from concerts, congresses, promotional events, exhibitions, fairs, etc. Campsites C and D are for rent.
