Sagrada Familia Square
At the beginning of the 20th century, there is evidence that the land where the square is situated was used as a soccer field.
At the time of its inauguration, in 1928, the square was named General Barrera, in honour of Emilio Barrera, who was General Captain of Catalonia. Like many streets in Barcelona, in 1931 with the establishment of the Second Republic, it changed its name to Sagrada Família.
The gardens, designed by the landscape architect Nicolau Rubió i Tudurí, are part of the catalogue of architectural heritage protected by the Barcelona City Council.
In the square, we can find the statue of Míliu, a children’s character of Toresky, Josep Torres and Vilalta, a ventriloquist and Catalan radio host, pioneer in this field.
