The Silos Of Burjassot

Burjassot is found just to the north of Valencia, close enough to be connected via tram. The town's defining symbol is its Patio of Silos, where Valencia's grain was stored for centuries, and which was later used as a refuge during the Spanish Civil War.

From above ground, the only visible aspect of the silos is their heavy concrete caps, spaced out across a large patio. The silos themselves have been sealed off since the early 20th century, but were opened up to the public just this year.
