Bon Pastor

The father Botella
Located in the municipality of Sant Andreu, it was originally a basically rural district independent from Barcelona. The lands of the Sanchís district were the first settlement and plenty of the surrounding areas were selt to well-off families until 1929, the year when the famous “cheap houses” were built. In 1943 this district became part of the city, thanks to the action of the priest Joan Cortina of the Buen Pastor parish, also known as “Pare Botella”(The bottle father) for the thousands bottles that he gathered during his life. He wanted to make money to build schools in a district that lacked of them. So, from this church the whole district took the name that still preserves today.

La Maquinista Terrestre y Marítima was a factory of train’s machines that was founded in 1855 and that worked until 1993, when it was bought up by a multinational and the facilities were moved to Santa Perpètua de Mogoda. Some years later there were started the works to turn the factory into a park, a shopping centre and houses. In 2000 the park was inaugurated, a wide green space with a large number of trees, most of them planted at the beginning of the 20th century. The park preserves the setting wheel of the first steam machine that was used in the factory.
