Josep Maria Jujol , commonly known for his work in the most emblematic works of Antoni Gaudí , established its "architectural testing laboratory " in the town of Sant Joan Despi . With this experiment in rural architecture of the village, you can see the most evocative works of the architect .

Can Negre was an old farmhouse of the seventeenth century was radically reformed by Josep Maria Jujol to suit its owner with Pere Negre for the summer. His wavy shapes, religious symbols and bright colors suggest the rich inner world of the architect. Another iconic house in the village is called the Tower of eggs by locals. Officially called Torre de la Creu is composed of a total of five cylinders of different sizes and heights that form the perimeter of the summer house.

The architect Jujol came to maintaining a strong friendship and affinity with the people of the city to become the municipal architect during the last twenty years of his life .
