The Catalunia region

Located less than two hundred kilometers from the French border, Barcelona is a city open to the Mediterranean, causing the climate and pleasant temperatures in the Catalan capital.

Besides the sea, the mountain is also part of the landscape of Barcelona. The city, of 100.4 square kilometers, is surrounded by the Sierra de Collserola west and the mountain of Montjuïc, which rises near the coast.

All small hills, like Monterols the Putget, Carmel, Rovira and Peira, rise to the level of Barcelona, bounded by two rivers, the Llobregat and Besòs south to the north.

Situé à moins de deux cents kilomètres de la frontière française, Barcelone est une ville ouverte sur la Méditerranée, provoquant le climat et des températures agréables dans la capitale catalane.

Outre la mer, la montagne fait aussi partie du paysage de Barcelone. La ville, de 100,4 kilomètres carrés, est entouré par l'ouest de la Sierra de Collserola et la montagne de Montjuïc, qui s'élève près de la côte.

Toutes les petites collines, comme Monterols la Putget, Carmel, Rovira et Peira, s'élever au niveau de Barcelone, délimitée par deux rivières, le Llobregat et Besos sud vers le nord.

Barcelona

THE RAMBLA

Until 1854, the year in which Barcelona finally broke through its city walls, the city extended no further than the hexagon of the 15th century enclosure. Today, the streets bordering the Casc Antic (historic centre) are: Ronda de Sant Pau, Ronda de Sant Antoni, Ronda d'Universitat, Ronda de Sant Pere, Passeig de Lluís Companys, Avinguda Marquès de l'Argentera, Passeig Colom and Avinguda del Paral.lel. There used to be only one wide street at the heart of the city, La Rambla, an old stream whose name, according to popular belief, derives from the Arabic ramla, meaning "sandy ground".

Until the beginning of the 18th century, the Rambla was merely a path beside a stream running between convents on one side and the old city walls on the other. It was in 1704 that the first houses were built on the site of the old city walls, the area where the Boqueria market now stands, and the first trees were planted. In 1775 the old city walls by the Drassanes, or medieval shipyards, were demolished and a few years later a road was laid turning that part of the Rambla into a tree-lined avenue.

From the upper end, which runs into Plaça de Catalunya, to the lower end below the Columbus monument, this unique street in fact bears five names, each describing a section of the street. First, there is the Rambla de Canaletes, because of the Font de les Canaletes fountain, found there since ancient times: folk tradition has it that anyone who drinks from this fountain will keep returning to Barcelona.

The next section of the Rambla is known as the Rambla dels Estudis, after the mid-15th century building of that name, the Estudi General or University. The university was suppressed by Philip V and the building used as a barracks. In 1843 it was demolished. Continuing down towards the sea you come to the stretch known as the Rambla de les Flors, the only place in 19th-century Barcelona where flowers were sold and which even today preserves its old special charm. It was also known as Rambla de Sant Josep in the past after the convent of the same name. Next comes the Rambla del Centre, also known as the Rambla dels Caputxins, because of the Capuchin convent that used to be there. Finally, there is the stretch called the Rambla de Santa Mònica, giving access to the port, called after the parish church there, previously a convent of the Discalced (barefoot) Augustinians.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Jusqu'en 1854, année à laquelle Barcelone brisa le cercle des ses murailles, la ville ne représentait que l'hexagone de l'enceinte du XVe siècle, qui correspond aujourd'hui à la vieille ville, délimitée par la Ronda de Sant Pau, la Ronda Sant Antoni, la Ronda Universitat et la Ronda Sant Pere, le Passeig de Lluís Companys, l'Avinguda del Marquès de l'Argentera, le Passeig de Colom et l'Avinguda del Paral·lel. La Rambla, autrefois seule voie large du centre-ville, était un ancien torrent qui, selon la croyance populaire, tire son nom de l'arabe ramla, qui signifie « sable ».

Au début du XVIIIe siècle, un chemin bordé de couvents et de murailles longeait encore le torrent. En 1704, des maisons commencèrent à être construites dans l'espace occupé par les murailles (autour de la Boqueria) et des arbres furent plantés. La partie des murailles qui jouxtait Drassanes (chantiers navals) fut démolie en 1775 ; quelques années plus tard, la rue fut urbanisée et cette partie de la Rambla transformée en promenade.

Cette voie singulière, de bout en bout, depuis la Plaça de Catalunya au pied du monument dédié à Christophe Colomb, porte cinq noms qui la caractérisent : tout d'abord, celle que l'on appelle Rambla de Canaletes, du nom de la fontaine Font de Canaletes qui s'y trouve depuis des temps immémoriaux ; selon le dicton populaire, celui qui boit de l'eau à cette fontaine, revient toujours à Barcelone. Le tronçon qui suit s'appelle Rambla dels Estudis et tire son nom d'un bâtiment construit vers le milieu du XVe siècle : l'Estudi General, ou Universitat ; cette université fut supprimée par Philippe V et le bâtiment devint une caserne, démolie en 1843. Continuez en descendant vers la mer et vous arrivez à la Rambla de les Flors (également baptisée Rambla Sant Josep du nom de l'ancien couvent de Sant Josep). Au XIXe siècle, c'était le seul endroit de la ville où on vendait des fleurs ; aujourd'hui c'est une promenade unique en son genre. Le tronçon suivant est la Rambla del Centre, également connue sous le nom de Rambla dels Caputxins en raison de l'ancien couvent des frères capucins qui se trouvait dans ce quartier. Vous arrivez finalement au dernier tronçon, la Rambla de Santa Mònica, vestibule du port, où se dresse la paroisse qui lui donne son nom et qui fut, à l'époque, le couvent des augustins déchaussés.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hasta 1854, año en que Barcelona rompió el círculo de sus murallas, la ciudad era el hexágono del recinto del siglo XV, que hoy en día es el núcleo antiguo delimitado por las rondas de Sant Pau, Sant Antoni, Universitat y Sant Pere, por el paseo de Lluís Companys, la avenida del Marquès d'Argentera, el paseo de Colom y la avenida del Paral•lel. La Rambla, entonces única vía ancha en el corazón de la ciudad, era un antiguo torrente que, según la creencia general, debe su nombre a la voz árabe ramla, que significa 'arenal'.

Hasta principios del siglo XVIII, junto al torrente pasaba un camino bordeado por conventos y murallas. Fue en el año 1704 cuando se empezaron a levantar casas en el espacio ocupado por las murallas (en los alrededores de la Boqueria) y se plantaron árboles. La parte de las murallas junto a los astilleros se derribó en el año 1775; pocos años después, se urbanizó la calle y ese trozo de las Ramblas quedó convertido en paseo.

Esta vía singular ?desde el comienzo, en la parte más alta, junto a la plaza de Catalunya, hasta el final, al pie del monumento a Colón? recibe cinco nombres que la caracterizan: en primer lugar, la llamada Rambla de Canaletes, nombre que se le da por la Fuente de Canaletes, localizada en este punto desde antaño. Según el dicho popular, quien bebe de esta fuente siempre vuelve a Barcelona. El tramo que sigue es la llamada Rambla de los Estudios, nombre que le viene dado por un edificio construido a mediados del siglo XV: el Estudio General o Universidad, que suprimió Felipe V; después, el edificio se convirtió en cuartel, el cual también se derribó en el año 1843. Si continuas bajando hacia el mar, encontrarás la Rambla de las Flores (también llamada de Sant Josep porque era donde estaba el antiguo convento de Sant Josep), y el único lugar de la ciudad donde se vendían flores en el siglo XIX; hoy en día es un paseo único en su género. El tramo siguiente es la llamada Rambla del Centro, que también se conoce como Rambla de los Capuchinos, por el antiguo convento de frailes capuchinos que había en esta zona. Finalmente, llegarás al último tramo, la Rambla de Santa Mónica, vestíbulo del puerto, donde se levanta la parroquia que le da nombre y que fue, en su tiempo, convento de los agustinos descalzos.

"Excellent choice."

Me and my friends, we were really happy with the apartment. It looked exactly the same as in the pictures. I also liked that we had fans in our bedrooms, plus a big air conditioner in the living room … More
