 La "Porta Ferriça" era una de las puertas de la segunda muralla de Barcelona, construida en el Siglo XIII. La barra de hierro una de las medidas longitudinales usadas en la ciudad - que se fijó en ella le dio nombre asi como a la calle que conducia a dicha puerta desde el centro de la ciudad antigua. En la Calle Puertaferrisa, se construyeron, a principios del siglo XVI la Casa Gralla bello edificio plateresco desaparecido al abrirse la Calle del Duque de la Victoria, y la Casa Pinós, del Marqués de Barbará, derruida también a mediados del siglo XIX. La construcción del Palacio Moya, (hoy Comillas) en 1774, motivó el derribo de la antigua puerta.-
(English translation:) The "Porta Ferriça", built in the 13th century, was one of the gates of the second wall of Barcelona. An iron bar was set into this gate and used as a unit of measurement in the city. This iron bar gave the gate and the street that led to the gate from the center of the Old City their name. The Casa Gralla, a beautiful Plateresque building, was built on Puertaferrisa Street at the beginning of the 16th century, although it



disappeared due to the opening of the Calle del Duc de Victoria. The Casa Pinós of the Marquis de Barbará was likewise constructed here, but it was also demolished in the mid-19th century. The construction of the Moya Palace (today Comillas) in 1774, led to the demolition of the old gate.
