The houses are built with stones from Banyoles. In its origins it was the place where used to live the wool, one of the oldest guilds of the city, which was dedicated to prepare the wool that was about to be knitted.

La Font Square is medieval style square, which name cames from a fountain ('Font', in catalan) build in 18th century to carry the water outside the walls.
