Esplugues de Llobregat is the smallest municipality in extension of the Baix Llobregat, but until 1990 was part of the region of BarcelonÃ.

It appears that the etymological origin of Esplugues de Llobregat comes from the Latin terms representing speluncae Spelunca or a cave or a cave that opens to the earth in a more or less flat terrain. For the relief of the town is believed that this would be the most likely explanation.

The origins of Esplugues de Llobregat we can find located from the remains of an Iberian found at the top of the mountain of Sant Pere Martir. However, there is also evidence of a small Romanesque church of which there is nothing left, but we can say it was very small, with a bell tower and dedicated to St. Mary Magdalene.

During the Middle Ages, Esplugues de Llobregat was articulated around two towns. On one hand, the farms located around the church and on the other, the settlement that would have stood around the castle and the old inn. Gradually, Esplugues de Llobregat came together to end city constituted as along the twentieth century.

Esplugues de Llobregat we highlight its old town with streets like Montserrat or farmhouses like Can Cortada, where he lived Maldá Baron, author of the book Grab Bag. We can not forget the museums in the city, dedicated to the tiles and ceramics.

As natural areas we highlight the fantastic viewpoint offered by the mountain town of Sant Pere Martir and Vidalet Can Park.

Esplugues de Llobregat celebrates its festivals Sant Mateu, September 21 and Santa Magdalena on July 22.
