Hop off at the Sarrià stop to discover an area that conserves the essence of an old town full of quiet streets and traditional shops. The Sarrià district is home to a Modernista market, a religious school designed by Gaudí, and peace and tranquillity.
Sarrià, an oasis of peace
The Sarrià stop on the Blue Route is at the hundred-year-old market of one of Barcelona’s quietest districts and the last municipality to be incorporated into the city, in 1921.
In addition to visiting the old Sarrià Market, which is decorated in the Modernista style with a fully renovated interior, from the Sarrià stop you can walk down Carrer Major de Sarrià and appreciate the charm of the old hub of the district.
You can also take a stroll to the Col·legi de les Teresianes school, where Gaudí showed that he could adapt to the sobriety required by the Saint Teresa of Jesus religious order while leaving his mark on the decoration of the merlons and the structural composition of the parabolic arch corridors and light wells, which are designed to let in as much sunlight as possible.
