España square, Plaça de Dins and San Lorenzo

The Plaça de Dins in a snowfall in the 50s

Inside the Plaça there was a market with fish and meat shops until the 40s.

Despite its origin being the San Agustín cloister, its current appearance is from the XVIII century.

This tower in Santa María's facade was built in 1928 after the facade's columns. It lasted for 8 years before demolishing the church in 1936.

This building with an access arc to the Plaça de Dins was built in the 1840s, beacuse of its recent opening.

Before widening the Santo Tomás street, this space was called "del Carme" square, where some market shops were located.
