Grain silos all around the area of Ciudad Real have been transformed into huge works of art. This one in Calzada de Calatrava is by the Spanish artist Okuda San Miguel, instantly recognizable for his geometric and colorful style. It is entitled Legends from La Mancha, and is inspired by the films of Pedro Almodóvar and local legends like Don Quixote.

The project includes 10 silos so far and is carried out with the help of local groups and young people with disabilities. The silos are free to visit any time of day and there is plenty of space to park.
