Granollers is the capital of the Vallès Oriental and the most populous city of the whole.

From the town of Granollers we highlight a Renaissance building that served market of grain and is known as the Porxada finished building is late sixteenth century. The building has dimensions of 24 meters long and 15 wide. It has 15 Tuscan columns on which rests a four-pronged roof. Today it occupies a prominent place in the middle of the town square and chairs. This building is a clear example of what made the golden city lived with both population growth and trade through its market. Over time, the city loses power and undergoes various ups and downs over the years. One of the changes or elements that gave strength during the last years of the twentieth century was the fact that conviertiera Granollers in Olympic co-host for the Olympic Games of Barcelona '92, during which parties balomano welcomed.

In fact, the Porxada is, in almost all cases, the center of the celebrations fun: during carnival is celebrated costume market, for Sant Jordi book fair and in many others, markets and fairs becomes the quintessential scenario.

One of the most remarkable festivals Granollers is the Festa Major de Blancs i Blaus. Held the last Thursday in August and opened the beginning of nine days of big party. Between the two rival groups have to find one that is capable of being the leader of the Festa Major. The tradition seeks the origins of this holiday in the rivalry that had two brick Granollers to see which of the two was able to make more bricks in an hour. The healthy competition brings to life the popular cultural activities are organized.
