Catalan term or phrase:persianes corredisses i enrotllables als laterals
Are these vertical blinds?
"El conjunt de la fusteria de tota la casa d’El Capricho és d’una qualitat extraordinària, tant per la qualitat de la fusta (que ha sobreviscut els anys de la debacle) com pel disseny de portes i porticons, finestres i finestrons, arrambadors, enteixinats, **persianes corredisses i enrotllables als laterals*** de la finestra..."
Explanation: They are certainly blinds that slide, like sliding doors. The others are roller blinds, but trust Gaudí to find a way to make them roll up to the side, rahter than the logical up and down motion of standard blinds :-)
Explanation: Sort of guessing...I can't hardly imagine it but then that's usually the case with Gaudi, gotta see it... That's my bet. Side roller blinds feature often in cars, guess system is similar. How does that sound? :-)
