Formerly the streets of our town had no name. The population was so small that virtually everyone knew and when they need to indicate a direction, was enough to name the family who lived in front, beside or three doors beyond. Until 1850, Barcelona did not reach 164,000 inhabitants.
Tomorrow, July 26, claim the name of a street and its festival. The day of Santa Anna and Santa Anna Street.
Do not forget that Street Association invites you to 18.30H to a snack.
Take this opportunity to discover their cooffe shops and their stores, there are modern and centuries, as Guantería Alonso. These trades with over 100 years of history preserve restored exhibitors and interior furnishings of the time.
This day is the perfect excuse to visit the cloister of the Church of Santa Anna, a bit hidden in the quiet inner square, Plaza Catalunya accessible by or through the street itself.
For a long time, the pilgrims came to visit the "capella dels persons" (Chapel of the Holy Sepulchre), as it was the equivalent of a pilgrimage to the Old Jerusalem. Were the perdons of Santa Anna Street.
