  • The market d¬īHostafrancs is a Barcelona municipal market in the neighborhood of the same name, Hostafrancs. Designed by the architect Antoni Rovira i Trias, was inaugurated in 1888 and has undergone several renovations throughout its history. It has a steel structure with exposed brick similar to the other municipal markets built in the late nineteenth century.¬†

    On the land presently occupied by the market, there was a construction factory which opened at the same time in 1888, which was a twin to the original market. As well in 1888, was the year of the Universal Exhibition hosted Barcelona that highlighted these similar architectural style.

    The original market supplied workers of the old factories that were nearby. The closure of most of these factories was reflected in the activity of a market that, until the 1960s, had wooden stalls.

    Architecture

    The market is made up of three sections, one larger central and two smaller lateral areas.

    At the top of the facade there are iron panels with small openings that allow the passage of air. In the middle of the façade, the central body there is an iron structure in the form of rounded glass inside.

    El mercat d’Hostafrancs √©s un mercat municipal de Barcelona, al barri d’Hostafrancs. Obra de l’arquitecte Antoni Rovira i Trias, va ser inaugurat el 1888 i ha sofert diverses reformes al llarg de la seva hist√≤ria.

    Pertany al grup de mercats que ja han celebrat el centenari. T√© una estructura de ferro amb tancament d‚Äôobra vista amb l‚Äôarquitectura m√©s rica dels mercats municipals constru√Įda a la darreria del segle XIX.

    Id√®ntic al mercat de la Concepci√≥, el d’Hostafrancs va abastir els treballadors de les antigues f√†briques que tenia als voltants.

    En els terrenys que avui ocupa el mercat hi havia hagut una b√≤vila. Es va inaugurar el 1888, el mateix any que el Mercat de la Concepci√≥, amb el qual s√≥n bessons, i l’any de la primera Exposici√≥ Universal que va acollir Barcelona.

    Antigament, en aquest mercat hi solien venir a comprar els treballadors de les nombroses f√†briques que hi havia als voltants. El tancament de la major part d’aquests f√†briques es va veure reflectit en l’activitat d’un mercat que, fins a la d√®cada del 1960, tenia les parades de fusta.

    Arquitectura

    Obra d’Antoni Rovira i Trias, t√© una estrucura de ferro amb tancament perimetral d’obra vista. La nau la formen tres cossos, un de central m√©s gran i dos de laterals m√©s petits i de menor al√ßada.

    A la part superior de la fa√ßana hi ha uns plafons de ferro amb petites obertures que permeten el pas de l’aire. A la part mitja de la fa√ßana, el cos central hi t√© una estructura de ferro en forma d’arquets amb vidre a l’interior.
