Photographer's Note

The Square of Sant Agustí Vell, who takes the name of the former convent of Sant Agustí, connects the Carders street with the "Portal Nou" and the "Basses de Sant Pere". In the latter section there had been located the ponds of the former mills and textile facilities that were dismantled during the 19th century. The square has a medieval arcades part, though most of the buildings are of the XVIIIth and XIXth centuries. In the number 3 of the Portal Nou street there is a wooden girder with an inscription that shows the date of 1699.

This small square is a delicious and very calm corner, which I found during a photographic walk along the Neighborhood of Santa Caterina and the Born, during a sunny morning of December. The enormous trees were giving me a nice game of light and shades, and the terraces were inviting me to take a cup of coffe.

La plaza de Sant Agustí Vell (San Agustín Viejo), que toma el nombre del antiguo convento de Sant Agustí, enlaza la calle Carders con el “Portal Nou” y las “Basses de Sant Pere”. En este último tramo habían estado ubicadas las balsas de los antiguos molinos e instalaciones textiles que fueron desmanteladas durante el siglo XIX. La plaza tiene una parte medieval porticada, aunque la mayor parte de los edificios son de los siglos XVIII y XIX. En el núm. 3 del carrer Portal Nou hay una viga de madera con una inscripción que lleva la fecha de 1699.

Esta pequeña plaza es un rincón delicioso y muy tranquilo, que encontré durante un paseo fotográfico a lo largo del Barrio de Santa Caterina y el Born, en una mañana soleada de Diciembre. Los enormes árboles me regalaban un bonito juego de luz y sombras, y las terrazas invitaban a tomar un café.
