Aside from the wars, there was the confrontation between liberals and conservatives, and the bitter opposition of the people of Barcelona to the General Espartero regency, which prompted him to order the shelling of Barcelona from Montjuïc Castle in December 1842, to put down and pacify the people.But the stubborn populace continued to move forward.The remains of the demolished neighbourhood can now be seen at the Born Cultural Centre archaeological site.Barcelona was seriously weakened following the War of Succession but there were many traders and entrepreneurs who set up new activities that quickly took root.Tensions with the central power were common throughout the 16th and 17th centuries and, as a result of the war Philip l V was waging against France, which imposed a big economic burden on the counties in the Principality of Catalonia, in 1640 the Catalan people revolted.It took place on the Feast of Corpus Christi and has gone down in history as Bloody Corpus, the day that marked the start of the Guerra dels Segadors (the Reaper's War).But when the Crown of Aragon became part of the new Spanish monarchy, and the conquest of America pushed trade towards the Atlantic, the city's maritime activity was weakened.

The area was then transformed into a big park, though initially it was developed as a trade fair site for the Universal Exposition of 1888.The construction of a new port and the opening up of sea trade at the end of the 18th century revived an activity that involved many different crafts and trades, ranging from merchants to sailors and craftsmen who all had some connection or other with harbour activities.The embryonic textile industry gave rise to a sector that spread and strengthened through the 19th century, with steam power being introduced to factories and providing employment for large numbers of workers who arrived in Barcelona and populated the new working-class neighbourhoods that sprang up outside the walls.This new era also saw the beginnings of the Renaixença (Renaissance), a new stage in the recovery of the Catalan language and culture, which had been abolished since the end of the War of Succession.This in turn laid the foundations for the birth of a new political Catalanism.
