History[eedit | eedit soorce]

El Prat wis foondit atween the years 1720 an 1740, when the toun stairtit tae grow besides a path crossin. The first biggins tae appear wur the kirk (dedicatit tae Saunt Peter an Saunt Paul), the hostel (which servit as a schuil, bakery, an obviously as a hostel), an some ither hooses built bi the fermers o the delta, who came tae the kirk tae pray.

Efter this, the installation o a ferry tae cross the river an, later, the construction o the Ferran Puig brig, the arrival o the railwey an the discovery o unnergrund watter impruivit the communication o El Prat an consequently doubled its population. In 1917, the installation on the toun o La Papelera Espanola, a factory producin paper an derivatives, stairtit the industrial years o El Prat.

Next, in 1923, three private aerodromes stairtit operations in El Prat, due tae the flat terrain o the municipality. That wis the beginnin o the connection atween El Prat and the world of aviation, that wad end up creatin Barcelona-El Prat Airport efter the unification o the three aerodromes in 1948.

In 1926, anither company, this time of the textile sector, called "La Seda de Barcelona", built a factory in the toun. That caused the feenal spurt o growthe o El Prat. Wi the immigration o fowk frae the sooth o Spain (maistly Andalusie an Extremadura), the town almost doubled in size bi 1930, an again bi 1950, an then increased its size threefaud in 1970 wi the creation o the neebourheids o Sant Cosme, Sant Jordi an La Granja, built tae be the hame o these immigrants. Feenally, wi the next expansion, the population doubled in size ance again, awtho haes nou reached a period o stability.
