This old electrical substation in La Barceloneta’s Pl del Poeta Boscà is a symbol of the electrification that made the Second Industrial Revolution possible.

  • Cultural heritage

The electrical substation is on Carrer Atlantica. It was used to transform AC electricity, coming from the centre of Parallel, into DC low voltage between 110 and 150 volts to provide energy to the city. The building, which still preserves Art Deco elements, was designed in 1907 as part of a network for producing power plants and transformer stations that provided electricity to the main industrial centres close to the centre of Barcelona. There were also other buildings in Carrer Talleres, including El Rec Comtal and Poblenou.
