Neighborhood: Gothic Quarter, Raval & La Ribera

The name comes from the Basílica de Santa Maria del Pi, and from St Josep Oriol, who is buried there. The two squares are consecutive; one leads into the other. A sculpture of Àngel Guimerà resides in Sant Josep Oriol—he was a very important writer representative of a Catalan cultural movement called La Renaixença in the 19th Century. There are art and food markets here, as well as musicians playing and singing in the street, with people listening to them from the terraces of the many pleasant cafés surrounding the two squares.
