District of Sants-Montjuïc

The neighborhood of Sant Antoni owes its name to an old gateway to the walled city, known as the Sant Antoni gateway, which was the main entrance route to Barcelona since the Middle Ages. The neighborhood began to be urbanized during the second half of the 19th century, when the wall was demolished, and especially after the construction of the iron market, in 1882. This caused that, urbanistically, it was integrated into the Cerdà Plan, that is part of the Eixample district.
