This narrow street, that starts in the ''Plaça del Pi'' has a very special atmosphere. It is famous because of its chocolate shops, where you can drink a hot chocolate since the 18th century. It has also very important art galleries (''Sala Parés'', the place where Picasso made a dedicated exposition for the first time). The street is decorated with flagstones that represent scenes of a modernist book called ''L'auca del senyor Esteve'', by Santiago Rusiñol, which is a critic to the bourgeois society of that time and that he had to live.
