Cooperative Obrera La Fraternitat (Brotherhood Workers Cooperative)
Cooperative Obrera La Fraternitat (Brotherhood Workers Cooperative) Review
This strikingly ornate building in the otherwise humble fishermen's quarter, the only Art Nouveau building in Barceloneta, housed the progressive workers' organization La Fraternitat, founded in 1879. Begun as a low-cost outlet to help supply workers and their families with basic necessities at cut-rate prices, the cooperative soon became a social and cultural center that included a public library. The present cooperative building was inaugurated in 1918 and is now, once again, Barceloneta's library.
