The city divided by the meridian
The name of Meridiana is given to this “city” because of the large avenue that passes through this area of Barcelona, the Meridiana. It was christened with this name because its layout, which runs from north to the south, coincides partially with the Greenwich Meridian. The Ciutat Meridiana district came into existence in the decade of the 60s at the height of the Franco years. Now It borders on the district of Torre Baró and Vallbona and on the municipality of Montcada i Reixach. It is an area with a lot of slopes, since it was created through many excavation works on the Collserola mountain.
