OUIGO's Tip 

A railway warehouse that is part of the station houses La Neomudéjar. Set up as an abandoned industrial warehouse, it is an alternative artistic space that serves as an arts, experimenting and creativity centre, holding diverse artistic expressions that diverge from the conventional circuits: performances, video art, sound art, robotics, street art and parkour.
