The obscure folder

    Lost in the heart of the Pyrenees, the Canfranc station bring together itself a big amount of signs that permit to suppose that a Passage would be hidden in one of his uncountable pieces.

   First start with the incoherence to have built such a gigantic station in such a lost place. The Canfranc station, at the moment of his inauguration, would have been the biggest station in the world after the one of Leipzig. But this is in the inner side of it that the most disconcerting signs can be found. Why some much abandonned sumptuousness? Why all these locked rooms? Why the railway company doesn't want to let visit the building?

   Finally, the most disconcerting fact is this permanent mirror effect of the station. Perfectly symmetrical, whatever the traveller comes from the north or the south, he has the same impression. All the placards written both in French and Spanish are situated side by side giving the illusion to the one who look to them that they are speaking together. And if this constant parallelism was just there to hide the one between our world and the one of the Obscure Cities?
