The courts of the rural areas
Corts of Sarrià is the original name of this area, which was called in this way since it included rural lands under the aegis of Sarrià where corts (courts) like farms, corrals or other kind of space for livestock stood. In 1822 this area became independent— although it only became effective in 1836—and it had its own town hall until 1897, when it became annexed to the city of Barcelona.
