Next to the Hotel Ritz on the Gran Vía is the pretty Passatge Permanyer, where the famous Catalan pianist Vidiella and the versatile Apel·les Mestres lived. Opposite the Passatge Permanyer is the Torre de les Aigües, the only inner courtyard of the Eixample with access for the public. It is presided over by the tower of a former water deposit, on the ground floor of which has been built a sort of artificial beach which children love.


Built between the years 1862 and 1864, these were the first houses built in the Eixample designed by Antoni Valls i Galí. They are situated between the streets Llúria and Consell de Cent, at numbers 340, 369, 371 of the latter. There were originally four houses but one was knocked down in 1960.


Situated at the junction of Calle Llúria and the wide Calle Aragón, another of the main arteries of the city. It was transferred from Calle Jonqueres near Vía Laietana to its present location under the responsibility of Joan Granell between 1871 and 1888.
