I love abandoned places. Places where time stands still and everything is waiting for the passing of time. Or for exciting events to happen…
Last week we visited Liège. Our first stop was Cité Miroir. The Cité Miroir gave a second life to the former swimming pool and bathhouse Sauvenière.
The renovation proces was huge. But it turned out beautifully. They kept a lot of the original features, like the staircase here on the left and the original tribunes.
Now a days the Cité Miroir is used for performances, debates, exhibitions, films and other educational activities. For example, in the former children’s pool there is a place for events. I love the original floor and the colors. Who doesn’t love this kind of blue?
It was outstandingly hot that day. So a visit to the pool was a welcome addition. Even though there wasn’t any water. To match the water theme I wore my anchor shirt and seagull brooch, found in Brussels.
