This street is the best example of the typical character of traditional buildings in the city. Here you can find Casa Espanya and L’Harmonia, great Renaissance houses where old lineages in L’Hospitalet lived, which currently house the Museum of L’Hospitalet. Next to it we find other unique buildings such as Can Riera, a 17th century farmhouse, the Casa dels Finestrals Gòtics and the Talaia which, along with other buildings such as Ca n’Oliver, create an absolutely unique urban landscape in the whole of the city.
The old Tecla Sala textile factory is a large Manchester-style brick building that represents one of the great cultural centres not only of the city, but of the entire metropolitan area. It is located next to an old waterfall in the Infanta canal that gave energy to a paper mill from the middle of the 19th century, subsequently integrated into the textile factory. It currently houses the city’s Central Library, as well as the Art Centre and spaces of artistic and cultural value such as the Arranz Bravo Foundation and the Pubilla Cases Workshop (TPK).
These gardens are part of a 16th century farmhouse that has been turned into the city's library. When the weather is nice, many cultural activities are held here: dance, theatre, music, etc.
A trip to the origins of L’Hospitalet, a small plaza below Carrer del Xipreret. Here, you’ll find the Talaia (a 16th century defence tower), L’Harmonia (a Renaissance manor, now part of the Museum of L’Hospitalet) and even a water tank used in the past by neighbours in the street.
The Plaça de l’Ajuntament is a lovely space where we can see the parish church rebuilt after the Civil War (the artistic remains of the old one can be seen in the Museum of L’Hospitalet). The space is also presided over by the Town Hall, built at the end of the 19th century thanks to the testamentary bequest of the mason Rossend Arús from L’Hospitalet. It is a unique building that represents the seat of political power in the city. The square is closed off by the large building from the 1950s with a classic architectural arrangement typical of the time.
An emblematic space that emerged at the end of the 19th century where drinking water arrived in L’Hospitalet from a mine in Esplugues, where it was distributed to other sources in the city. Today, the Post Office building stands out, one of the best examples of a Noucentista-style building in the city. It was inaugurated in 1927 by the Queen and currently houses a hospitality school. The other interesting building in the square, from an architectural point of view, is the Ysern chalet, currently a police station. It is a very simple but at the same time careful rationalist construction. It just so happens that the two buildings (so different) were designed by the same architect: Ramon Puig Gairalt.
