And in the centre… a square
The land of the present square belonged to Count Bell-lloc. In 1873, the Sants’ municipality approved a project for the urbanization of this land and since the square stood right in the middle of the whole, it was christened Plaça del Centre (Central square).
This square is located between the Vallespir and the Comtes de Bell-lloc streets, and an imaginary line runs divides it into two-halves: the side with the even numbers belongs to the Sants-Montjuic district, while the side with the odd numbers, to the Corts district, leaving the square just in the middle of both districts. In the past, a roundabout very well-known by the people of Barcelona stood in the square of this metro station.
The Plaça del Centre station was inaugurated in 1975.

Very close to the station and heading towards Les Corts square, there is the Passatge de Tubella, a group of houses dating back to 1925 that is a good example of the type of dwellings in which the workmen of the area settled into.

|THE OLD MUNICIPALITY OF LES CORTS
plaça Comas, 18
This building is the present seat of the district. It was designed by Antoni Rovira i Rabassa and it was inaugurated in 1884. In the façade it is still possible to see the original shield of Les corts, when it was a municipality. The area around Les Corts street is well-known as Corts Velles.
