The Torre Baró-Vallbona neighbourhood is where you will find the only open-air stretch of the old Rec Comtal, an irrigation canal built in the 10th century that made use of the route followed by a Roman aqueduct in disuse. It covered 12 kilometres, started in Montcada i Reixac, and supplied water to the walled city and the orchards on the Barcelona plain. A real walk through the city's medieval past.
