Avenida Diagonal is home to a concentration of office buildings, hospitals and shopping centers, among them L’Illa Diagonal, built in the 1990s by the architects Rafael Moneo i Manuel de Solà-Morales. The rationalist-style building has become one of the most characteristic images of the Diagonal area. As well as a big commercial centre with more than 170 shops and restaurants, L'illa Diagonal complex includes two four star hotels, two schools, a sports centre, dance hall and a conference centre. Near the complex, we can see the Francesc Macià square, the president of the Catalan government at the beginning of the 20th century, and the Turó Park, with a statue of Pau Casals, the world’s best know Catalan musician, stands at the entrance.
