When war becomes art
Fábrica de Braço de Prata11
Why locals love it
An old weapons factory (the apple of the eye was a submachine gun of 9mm) whose peak production was at the same time than the colonial war. Then the building was abandoned, to become today a cultural space. Nowadays, instead of gunpowder, you can find books.
Why you should visit it
