We move from fur coats to church organs, as the latter's sounds once echoed through the halls of this former chapel. The Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) installed its MareNostrum, the most powerful supercomputer in Europe, in the 19th century Torre Girona chapel in Barcelona, Spain.
BSC has a lot more cool pictures of the chapel.
