Casa Parés, an old foundry workshop in the Sant Pere neighbourhood, closed in 2007. It did so looking the same as it had when it opened 132 years earlier.
The Jaume Pares Morros laminating and printing company exemplified longevity. Founded in 1875, it continued operating up to the 21st century. The Casa Pares industrial workshop specialised in the work of lead and tin seals, medals and dressmaker leads which were developed to identify cold cut meats. The original machinery is perfectly preserved, an example of a German mill from the late 19th century, stamping machines and seals’ markers, moulds, shears and oven to melt the materials.
