What I can see

The city’s old port warehouses were buildings of the industrial era, built of stone and brick, according to European standards. Today, they are used to house cultural spaces (e.g. Photography Museum, Cinema Museum, etc.), cultural events, conferences and other events. One of the largest buildings of the port is the PAEGA warehouse (1927), which served the storage needs of the free trade zone between Greece and Yugoslavia.

What I can't see

They suffered terrible damage during the bombings of the Second World War and after the war, they were reconstructed according to their original design. They have been listed by the Ministry of Culture and only their shells survive today, as they have been reconstructed internally to serve modern needs. The stables held 1200 large animals, but with the invention of the refrigerator they gradually declined, since it was no longer necessary to transport the animals alive.
