Between Portorož and Piran, there are two architectural jewels. These are the historic salt warehouses of Magazen, Grando and Monfort, listed as both cultural and historical heritage. Only a few years ago, ships carrying salt were docked at the nearby pier. They were built in the time of Napoleon between 1820 and 1845. Today this is a magnificent venue and exhibition space, which hosts exhibitions and events directly on the sea front.
