Sant Roc

Sant Roc (Catalan name; Spanish: San Roque) is a neighbourhood of Badalona, in the metropolitan area of Barcelona (Catalonia, Spain). In 1958 the Badalona city council planned construction on the site, under the name of Barrio del Regadío. It was urbanised beginning in December 1962 and originally inhabited by people resettled from slums in the Barcelona area, after damages caused by major floods. Still nowadays it has an important Roma presence. The Francoist housing organisation Obra Sindical del Hogar y Arquitectura was responsible for most of the construction in Sant Roc, mostly made up of tower blocks.[1]
