Roquetes Campana


A community strong as rock

This station leads into the Roquetes neighborhood, which abuts with the Sierra of Collserola and which is at the feet of a very steep mountain that also goes by the name of Roquetes. This is exactly where it derives its name from, since to build abodes IT? was necessary to dredge the rocky mountain first. Until 1950, the terrain’s inclination was such that it discouraged any kind of urban development whatsoever. However, the wave of immigration that reached Barcelona and needed a place to live forced city planners to develop this area. The advantages of this geographical location are anyway the magnificent views of the city that the neighborhood offers especially from its highest point.
