Rosanes aerodrome and the historical sites of the Alt Congost
This webpage, created by the La Garriga, L’Ametlla del Vallès and Les Franqueses Town Councils, offers all the information about the historical site of Rosanes aerodrome, a civil aviation field dating from the 1930s which was later turned into a Republican airfield. It also includes information about other various projects linked to historical sites in the three towns. Among these is the railway station air raid shelter in La Garriga.

The history of the River Congost
Pupils in Year 5 of Pinetons Primary school in La Garriga created a blog during the 2013/14 school year dedicated to explaining the historical importance of the River Congost and its uses by the people of La Garriga. The project was part of the Projecte d’Apadrinament Patrimonial (“Heritage Sponsorship Project”) founded three years previously by the ‘Área de Patrimoni de l’Ajuntament’ (the Town Council’s Heritage Department). This was completed by the unveiling of a commemorative plaque complete with QR code placed on the Can Jacob bridge in the Parc dels Pinetons, where a river landing has also been created.

El Camí is a hiking path which is in the process of being created, aided by the community, which will enable walkers to cross the whole of Catalonia. A journey through culture, history, countryside and the spirit of our land.
The El Camí logo (a red incomplete number eight indicating the direction to follow) marks a route which already links La Garriga to Corró d’Amunt, passing along el Carrer la Doma, la plaça de l’Església and El Passeig. In the future the path will be marked as far as Figaró.
