Barri de La Ribera
In the 10th Century, the Islamic population of Barcelona was banished from the city and sent outside the city walls, to where Carrer Argenteria now lies. With time, the population of this quarter became more diversified and it expanded notably. This is the area that became the Ribera quarter. The neighborhood was full of economic activity, and in it lived merchants, aristocrats, sailors and Jewish money-lenders. The most important commercial street was Montcada and the old boat factory was also here, before moving beside Las Ramblas.
