+ Barcelona, darrera mirada

The web ‘Barcelona, darrera mirada’ is a chance to get to know a very different city to the one we know today. A city with a single narrow street connecting Pl. Nova with Barcelona Cathedral and where the Via Laietana hadn’t yet been planned. It was a period where there were numerous alleys and squares, the Pl. Àngel was complete and the Pla de Palau was a large esplanade.
