About This Map
A detailed late 19th-century view of Barcelona, showing streets, parks, hills, buildings, rail lines, and more. The city of Barcelona expanded considerably throughout the second half of the 19th-century, with many new neighborhoods added on a regular street grid pattern. The city grew to encompass several smaller towns nearby, and the map shows the new grid pattern fanning out to meet the existing smaller towns. The map also includes inset text on the left outlining the population of the various neighborhoods in 1887, and an inset chart in the upper right showing the distance and direction of cities in Spain and around the world to Barcelona.
