SUMMER RESORT ARCHITECTURE
La Garriga’s heritage and modern-day structure are defined by its former role as a summer resort. The mass arrival of estiuejants (summer visitors) marked a drastic change in the town’s urban landscape and also in its social make-up. Traces of the townscape and architecture from these years can still be found all over the town.
Art and nature both contributed to the summer-resort architecture of the end of the 19th century and the first third of the 20th. Eclectic Modernist and Noucentista buildings pave the way, providing an insight into bourgeois life a century ago.
