We will go up Gran street, with a wide range of shops where we can buy artisan products.

Following Gran street we reach the Font de Sant Domingo. During the summer festival, at the beginning of August, the act of blessing the waters is celebrated, a tradition that has its origins in the ancient pilgrimage of Sant Domènec, which began in the 17th century, in which Argentona made a vow to the saint to to protect the waters from the epidemic that was affecting the entire country.
