El coll de Finestrelles
The name reminds us of the existence in this place of the Trinity Convent, built in the fifteenth century and belonging to the Discalced Trinitarians. This convent stood until the arrival of the Napoleonic troops, who burnt it down in the 1808. Currently, on that very same ground stands the Church of Sant Jaume.
Nowadays, the entire neighborhood that encompasses the area receives the name of Trinitat Vella. But before being the present neighborhood, la Trinitat, also known as El coll de Finestrelles, was one of the independent ends of the municipality of Sant Andreu de Palomar, a stop-over place for those crossing from the plains of Barcelona, making their way to the Pyrenees.
