Fachada casa chorizo

"No hay dos casas chorizo iguales" I once said, and tried for a long time to see if could be wronged. But to find a similarly coloured or even same styled house, to my own (non) surprise, I have not been able to find one yet.

These houses either have their short or long side facing the street. some even have both if being located in the corner. But the layout stays the same, the "chorizo" of rooms interconnected through internal doors which give these houses its famous sausage name.

The fachada (facade in Spanish) of the casas chorizo were designed as a reflection of the families living inside. The high doors, windows and ornaments positioned the social ladder in the barrio. Now with these houses being replaced by high-rise, they are becoming more and more a memory how once the streets were lived in the early 20th century.
