Guided Tour: The Rambla and surroundings

The Rambla, before becoming the central artery of Barcelona, and becoming world famous, was only the bed of a stream that flowed before the walls of the city to the sea.
On one side stood the fortified city, and on the other, convents, hospices and markets that did not need the protection of the walls. In the 18th century, the wall was destroyed and the Rambla was born as a broad avenue, urbanized with trees and fountains.
In the nineteenth century, it reached the height of its splendor with the urbanization of the "Plaza Real" and the construction of the "Gran Teatro del Liceo", Barcelona's opera house.
