Presó Model


13 and 15 May, Carrer de Nicaragua and Carrer del Rosselló. El Centre Penitenciari d'Homes de Barcelona occupies two blocks of the L'Esquerra de l'Eixample, built as a Model Prison by Josep Domènech Estapà and Salvador Viñalsin in 1888 -1910: the six prisoner wings radiate from a polygonal centre, and a further administrative building lines the perimeter, the entrance on Carrer Entença. A new prison planned in the Zona Franca will see the Model Prison redeveloped for local community use.
