Barcelona in the 18th century

An old map of Barcelona

March 1st, 2010
Since the building of its walls in the Middle Ages until the mid-19th century, Barcelona remained the same size and shape. The plain which extended beyond was scattered with villages and small towns such as Gracià, Clot, Sant Martí de Provençals and Santa Maria de Sants. In between there were farmland and vinyards criss-crossed with  network of streams and torrents, and paths and roads and a few wetlands along the coast. This map was made after 1719 and before 1753. Unknown author. From (full sized map there)
