Can Masdeu

Today I went to visit one of the more famous squats here in Barcelona, Can Masdeu. Squat culture here is considerably larger than that of US. People live in old abandoned buildings without paying rent or being the official owners. Can Masdeu is in the countryside just north of BCN. After a ten-minute walk up the hill with a view of the flourishing valley, you'll find the old mansion located in the middle of some beautiful mountains...



oh and it was abandoned for 53 years because it used to be a leper hospital.
