A FORMER SALT STOREHOUSE
Monfort special venue, once a salt storehouse, is now a vast and magnificent exhibition and event space, situated right by the sea. Built during 1823 and 1827, and placed halfway between Portorose and Pirano, it nowadays serves several functions. One part of the grand space is occupied by the Monfort Contemporary Art Space and is managed by the Coastal Gallerie, while the other part houses a museum collection on traditional shipbuilding and the development of water sports, set up by the Sergej Mašera Maritime Museum. Additionally, Monfort is occupied by a museum of tourism and hiking.
