The Can Cadena estate, which gives its name to this 2,000 m2 city allotment, is part of the old area of Verneda de Sant Martí. The estate was probably built in the eighteenth century and was previously surrounded by stables and barns. This permitted carters who stayed overnight at the inn to shelter their carts and mules. At the end of the last century, Can Cadena became municipal property and is situated in the grounds of Parc de Sant Martí.

Can Cadena has a farm and a training centre for organic agriculture. Its environmental education programme has provided Parcs i Jardins with the opportunity to offer school activities aimed at teaching about organic agriculture and common domestic animals.

Another interesting aspect is the solar energy centre installed on the estate which generates approximately 8,724 kWh/year, the equivalent of the annual electrical energy consumption of four 80 square metre homes. The energy produced permits a saving of 940 kg/year in CO2 emissions released into the atmosphere.
