A little foretaste

At first the Portal del Pardo provided access from the Carrer Major to the track leading to Sant Vicenç de Calders, but from the 16th century it also led to the Raval de França district that was created in this area. In order to link this district, and cross the stream, the Riera de la Bisbal, the França bridge was built in 1888. This was the first bridge to cross the stream and you can see it behind you at the end of the street.
