The reddish fountains
Despite El Coll is a neighbouring area of the Teixonera, it is part of the Gràcia district. The name comes from a church’s name, once again, the church of Nuestra Señora del Coll, which is called in this way because it stands on a hill (coll).
The Teixonera or Taxonera is part of the Horta-Guinardó district and it is on top of the city. The name comes from Joaquim Taxonera and Cassà, a shoes-maker who was born in 1858. He was the owner of the Grau farm which stood in this area in the past.
