Plaza Masadas, according to the historian Joan Pallarès-Personat, was built at the end of the 19th century, in full growth of the city.

In the beginning, all the buildings in the square were very similar: white and of the same height, with supports of the same size. In the center of Plaza Masadas was a market that was demolished in 1955 to build the new Mercat de la Sagrera. The latter operated until the 90’s. After demolishing this market, the seemingly narrow Plaza Masadas became a charming place.
