The Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Popularly known as “La Iglesiona” (Big Church), the Basilica of the Sacred Heart was built between 1918 and 1922 following two plans. The first, dating from 1911, is the work of the Catalan architect Joan Rubió i Bellver (1870-1952), who employed neo-Gothic and Modernist elements. The second is the work of municipal architect Miguel García de la Cruz (1887-1935), who made substantial modifications to the façade, crowning it with the figure of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, situated 49.5 metres above the street.
