A street full of history
Carrer Comte is recorded in documents that date back to the 15th century. The street was the site of the architect Gaietà Buïgas i Monravà’s ancestral home (number 9). Another architect, Pau Montguió, was born in the house whose entrance is on the Plaça del Pallol (numbers 2 and 4). Josep Maria Jujol, assistant to Gaudí and an important architect in his own right, married into the Gibert family, who lived at Ca l’Abadessa (numbers 11 and 11 bis). In the 15th-century, the sculptor Pere Joan, whose work includes the Gothic reredos of the main altar in Tarragona Cathedral, lived at number 28.
