In Vicenç Casanovas Square, in the town centre of Vilassar de Mar, in the Maresme region, we can find a small washing place.
During the 19th and 20th centuries, a series of washing houses were built in different Catalan towns. These were public places for families to go and wash their clothes.
The Laundry room in Vicenç Casanovas Square is small. It only has two small swimming pools, and it is built with construction work. What can call our attention the most is the decoration, made with brittle, that there is in the highest part of the pool.
