L'expansió urbanística del Poble-sec de Barcelona. El cas dels molers de les pedreres de Montjuïc

Bellvehi Casadella, Josep
The community feeling associated to belonging to a neighbourhood is essential in our life quality. These emotions represent the relationship between the individual and the city. In this sense, this doctoral thesis analyzes the social, political, and economic environment of the “Poble-sec” neighbourhood, placed at the foot of the “Montjuïc” Mountain, in the area of Barcelona. The thesis establishes the actual condition of this neighbourhood and identifies the determinants and decisive aspects that led to the urbanistic development of different areas: “Les Hortes de Sant Bertran” (a maritime sector); “Santa Madrona” and “La Satalia” (central sectors); and “La França” (west sector). All of the areas have something in common, the coincidence of the neighbourhood development, around the middle of the s. XIX. In this thesis, the urban development transformation of the “Poble-sec” neighbourhood has been explored. It has been done from the individual and correlated analysis of the different sectors of the neighbourhood, taking into account the different factors that have influenced the individual character of the sectors and their origins which have been representatives as the “molers”, workers from the quarries, represented in the pathway, the cross and the house of the “molers” ​
