La Rambla (5)The History of La Rambla

La Rambla, originally, was a small stream that flowed just outside the walls of the city. In the 16th century, several convents and a university were constructed along the river. The 19th century saw the city wall torn down so that buildings could be erected along the stream which had now dried up over the centuries.

Even after the demolition of the original buildings, they are remembered in the names given to different parts of La Rambla. In spite of being a continuous street, it actually consists of five distinct ‘ramblas’. This is why the street is also known as Las Ramblas in Spanish or Les Rambles in Catalan.
