A thorn less memory

A gavarra is a hillock full of brambles typical of mountain vegetation, of which the sweetbriar or the gabarda: gavarrera in Catalan, wild rose in English, are the names by which these roses are commonly known. In the eleventh century a house called Mas Gavarra stood in this area.
La Gavarra began to be developed in the 50s and it’s situated between the Fogars de Tordera Rd. and the Sant Ildefons district.
