After the typhus epidemic that ravaged the city in 1914, due to water pollution, the supply system had to be renewed. The complex consisting of the Trinitat Vella Water House and the Trinitat Nova Water House
was built between 1915 and 1919, the year in which it was put into operation to improve the hygienic conditions of the supply. These two Trinidad water houses, joined by an underground tunnel that connects the two facilities and extend in the direction of Collserola, are now separated on the surface by the Meridiana, which is at the same time boundary between the districts of Sant Andreu and Nou Barris The Water House of Trinitat Vella (Sant Andreu) was the water distribution and lifting station of the municipal supply system of Barcelona and the Water House of Trinitat Nova (Nou Barris) was the place where it was decanting, chlorination and storage before distribution. This infrastructure stopped serving in 1989 and was replaced by new tanks a few hundred meters away. Great architectural and heritage value The Trinitat Nova Water House is a venue for holding city events open to all, with high heritage value and a privileged location, between the plain of Barcelona and the Collserola mountain range. The relevance of the Trinitat Nova Water House lies in its architectural clarity and its constructive typology. It is, in fact, one of the first buildings made of reinforced concrete in Barcelona. The modernist ensemble, designed by the engineers Felipe Steva i Planas and Joan Sitjes, is included in the city's heritage catalog. It is currently home to an Environmental Education facility. A new space Today, this space, which in the past was vital in the history of Barcelona and in the provision of one of the most precious assets for survival, has become an area with a landscaped landscape of great beauty and a garden of the municipal network.
