AbstractThe geography of the Fifth District ( "Barrio Chino") of Barcelona is presented, defining the physical spaces, the chronology of its configuration and the actors involved, and its ideological and cultural options. It focuses the interest in the objects, instruments and means that seek to warn the population of the dangers of a disorderly life, through the study of spaces such as the Roca Museum. Venereal diseases and tuberculosis played a key role in influencing popular medical culture from the official medical culture. It also describes the authorities' project to eradicate the physical, human and urban decline of the area.
