In the late 19th century and at the turn of the 20th century, Anglès enjoyed a period of prosperous economic activity, mostly thanks to the great Burés textile company, which turned a small rural town into a thriving industrial one. One of the results of this period of prosperity was the construction of a small but remarkable group of heritage buildings.
- Can Cendra (C/ d’Avall, 31 and C/ Girona, 7 – 9). Noucentista building designed by Rafael Masó, now home to Anglès Town Hall. The roof eaves and some other details reveal Central-European influences. Also noteworthy are its gardens, located to the rear of the house and now a public park.

- Can Peix (c/ del Castell, 6). This modernist house was also designed by Rafael Masó. It is characterised by the visual interplay of the different roof levels and the use of curved lines. The façade also features decorative motifs in the form of stone corbels and fish images. Private. Veure ubicació aquí (41° 57′ 28″ N, 2° 38′ 27″ E)
