The history of Sant Adrià is the history of the Besòs river, of industrialization, of immigration and of a city that has always struggled to find its place among the metropolis of Barcelona, Badalona and Santa Coloma de Gramenet.

The tour of the old town shows, for example, the rural heritage of Sant Adrià, when it was a small village surrounded by fields of crops and populated by large farmhouses. The modern parish church hides a network of streets flanked by low houses among which stands out the Can Rigalt farmhouse, a spectacular building recovered for the municipality and which was located on the Camí Ral. But the most characteristic image of Sant Adrià is in front of the sea: the three chimneys of the thermal power plant, which are already part of the sentimental landscape of the inhabitants of the Besòs riverside.

The Besòs river park runs along the last 9 km of the river, from its confluence with the river Ripoll to its mouth at the Mediterranean Sea. With a total surface area of 115 hectares, it is one of the most important green spaces in the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona and forms part of the urban continuum of the cities of Barcelona, Santa Coloma de Gramanet, Sant Adrià and Montcada i Reixach.
