Granollers. The Porxada Square.
Granollers is the capital and the most populous city of the comarque of Vallès Oriental, in the province of Barcelona. Located on the plain of Vallès, around the Congost river that crosses the city from north to south, Granollers is today an important communications center and a modern city, dynamic and with character.
It presents tourist interest the historic core of the city, formerly walled, with two central focuses: the old market and the church.


In the La Porxada Square we can admire the Casa de la Ciutat (Granollers City Hall), a neo-Gothic palace, the Clapés House and especially the Porxada, the most emblematic building of the city. This is an old grain market, built in the 16th century, a Renaissance rectangular building consisting of 15 tuscan order columns that support a large four-sided slanted roof..
In Plaça de la Església (Church Square) we find the Sant Esteve Church, postwar neo-Gothic building with bell tower of the 15th century, vestige of the old gothic church.
Near the La Porxada Square, on Sant Roc Street, is located the Casa del Condestable (Constable House), building keeping original Gothic elements. In the Carró Street is the Sala Francesc Tarafa which preserves the structure and some Gothic elements of the old Hospital de Sant Domènec.
The city has a remarkable set of modernist and other styles buildings of early 20th century: Casa Can Biel, Casa Sebastià Costa, Casa Josep Tardà, Casa Can Puntes, Casa Blanxart, Casa Ganduxer.
