    Filmed interview with the two entrepreneurs tells the story of how the space - a warehouse of an old cork factory- has been restored and adapted to this new functionality with the support of EFARD funds and with Local Action Group expertise in animation and project planning. The ancient flavor is preserved by using recovered and adapted elements: table squaring, wheel that lifted the cork, iron structure which plunged the cork to bake in the boiler was turned into table; lamps were made with chains and metal strips used in the factory. Big wall photo shows the owner of the old warehouse and the workers who worked here. The old building was refurbished but kept its ancient look. The Warehouse Art Gallery is also a café and tea house, a large space where you can read a magazine or a book, view exhibits and talk. Music, theater, dance, film and poetry are also forms of artistic expression that develop here.
