Description

In Bisbe Vilanova Street, 3-5, in the middle of the expansion district, there are several industrial buildings dating from 1916-17 made by Joan Roca Pinet, Olot's municipal architect. Descals factory and Sacrest garage are two Noucentist (Catalan cultural movement of the early 20th century) constructions which stand out for its details and high quality materials. The stone work and the glazed ceramics are two elements which retain most interest. The two buildings want to distance themselves from Modernist style.
