One of the medieval parish churches, Sant Jaume, was very close from here, next to the modern day town hall, with a porch and a cemetery. This church was demolished in the mid-19th century to open up the current square, Plaça Sant Jaume, that kept the parish’s name. Nowadays, this square, Plaça Sant Jaume, is the main center of power of Catalunya: on one side, there is the Generalitat de Catalunya (the Catalan government), on the opposite side of the square, there is l’Ajuntament de Barcelona (Barcelona’s town hall). During the 18th century,  this building was Joan Pau Martí’s house, Francesc Martí’s son. Francesc had been working as an architect, and later became one of the main printers and booksellers in the city. He owned the shop where he worked; he had bought it for 40 lliures and he was awarded an official trading title, printer of the city, of the General de Catalunya and of the Casa de la Diputació. He worked for the Administration that it was very near this spot.
