Centre d'Interpretació dels Tres Tombs de Sant Andreu - Can Fontanet
Built in 1917, Can Fontanet is the former stables for the horses working at the Fabra i Coats factory complex. Since 2014, this building with Catalan Modernist features has been home to the Tres Tombs Interpretation Centre, a place dedicated to discovering the origins and consolidation of this festival, where draught animals play a leading role. Can Fontanet's past makes it an ideal place to showcase all of the festival's features: the mules and horses, the different kinds of carriages, the fittings...
The building is a three-storey diaphanous construction: the ground floor has a stable for four horses, a place for showing the Tres Tombs carriages and a blacksmith's forge with all the tools needed to shoe horses. The first floor is made up of a service area with a small reception, adapted toilets and an archive. The top floor has a exhibition area with glass cases for the textiles and embroidery seen on the horses and carriages, along with an area that has moveable chairs for audiovisual screenings, presentations, etc.
