Passage of Lodares is an old residential and commercial gallery located in the very heart of Albacete. Dating back to 1925 the gallery was designed by Valencian architect D. Buenaventura Ferrando Castells.
It owes its name to Gabriel Lodares who ordered to have it built in the image of and likeness to Italian commercial galleries of those years.
Stroll down the streets of Albacete and discover monumental forms of the Passage of Lodares. Its cover of iron and glass together with its Renaissance columns make it one of the most emblematic places of the city. In the past the passage consisted of luxury apartments and commercial premises. Even today you can encounter prosperous shops on the ground floor where all kinds of merchandises are sold.
