2. Mauri bakery: Rambla Catalunya, 102.
The Mauri bakery started its activity in 1929 from the hand of Francesc Mauri Ciuró.

3. Sarret, bread shop: C / Girona # 73.
This modernist bakery, dating from 1878, and is notable for its overview, created from wooden frame, along with the curvature of the intersecting lines and ovals, hosts the label and extends building facade.
Between the two doors in the wall stands a shield showing the allegory of the wheat harvest. The label currently printed, may have been originally leaded glass.
