Casa Bruno – Sustainable House Day
This profile is written and maintained by the homeowner, architect, or builder.
We believe strongly in the principles of sustainability and liked the idea of having underground water storage as well as hydronic underfloor heating.
Other principles that were attractive included reverse brick veneer construction, solar passive design in general. Gardening is a passion and to compliment the sustainable house we wanted to create a low maintenance and low water use garden.

The Rambla in Barcelona – Trip2Trip
Trip2Trip / Europe / Spain / Barcelona /
Thimble Game, Rambla, Barcelona
The Rambla is Barcelona’s main pedestrian street. It starts at Plaza Catalunya with a straight arrow goes straight to the port to the sea, and crashes into it at the monument to Christopher Columbus. The Rambla divides the two historic districts of Old Barcelona: El Raval to the west of it and the Gothic Quarter to the east.
The Rambla is to Barcelona what the Champs-Elysées is to Paris. So this is a very busy place, and the number of tourists here just rolls over. That is why there are tourist attractions of various kinds. Here, for example, thimblemakers, as on the Moscow Arbat in the nineties. There are musicians, there are artists, there are living statues. There are cafes, restaurants and expensive shops.
In fact, the Rambla is not one street, but as many as five, flowing one into another. That’s why it’s called 9 in Spanish.0013 Ramblas, and in Catalan Rambles. This ending -s means plural. Therefore, their strict translation into Russian should sound like Rumbles. But, you see, it does not sound.
The name itself comes from the Arabic word “ramp”, that is, a dry river bed, which, however, is filled with water during the spring flood. The name stuck, because earlier there was a moat near the fortress wall. The resulting streets very quickly gained popularity among Barcelona residents and became a favorite place for walking.
The first section is called Rambla Canaletes. It appeared because of the cast-iron drinking fountain. Nowadays, there is a sign that you must definitely drink from this source in order to definitely return to Barcelona. Also, this fountain was chosen by fans of FC Barcelona.
The last, fifth, Marine Ralabra was added to the boulevard only during the 1992 Olympics.
Church of Our Lady of Bethlehem
Church of Our Lady of Bethlehem, Las Ramblas, Barcelona
This is the only church on the Rambla. In Spanish it is called Iglesia de La Madre de Dios de Belén, in Catalan it is Església de la Mare de Déu de Betlem . Located between the streets of Carme ( Calle del Carme ) and the artist Fortuny ( Calle Pintor Fortuny ).
The story begins in 1553, when the Jesuit Order received permission to build the first Jesuit school in Barcelona. In 1555, the first church was already flaunting on the Rambla. In 1671, during the celebration of the canonization of Francisco Borgia, a general of the Jesuit order, a firecracker accidentally flew into the church and started a fire.
In 1681, the construction of a new baroque building, designed by Josep Juli, began. Construction ended only in 1732. The sculptural frame was made by Francesc Santacruz y Artigues and his student Andreu Sala. Initially, the church belonged to the Jesuits, but after their expulsion from Spain in 1767, it was transferred to other congregations.
Only 20 years later, a service was held in the church by the Archbishop of Barcelona. On September 25, 1835, the parish of Our Lady of Bethlehem was organized. At 19In 36, the church was again damaged by fire. The last restoration was carried out in 1991-1993.
The façade of the church reminds of the baroque style. On the sides of the entrance are statues of Ignatius de Loyola and Francisco Borgia. The tympanum depicts the birth of Jesus.
Church of Our Lady of Bethlehem, Rambla, Barcelona
The church can be visited free of charge. From Monday to Friday, the first service starts at 9.00, the last at 20.00. On weekends and holidays, the first service begins at 11.00, the last at 20.00. The church is closed daily from 13.45 to 17.00.
Boqueria Market, Rambla, Barcelona
Mercat de São Josep , better known as Boqueria Market ( La Boqueria ), is the most famous market in Barcelona. And also the oldest. It is believed that the best products in the whole city are sold here, which I highly doubt, since it is highly promoted and is located on the tourist route. The portability of Barcelona is reflected in the fact that Boqueria has a huge selection of “seafood”, be it fish or some kind of oysters. But the counters of Boqueria are not full of the sea alone! There are vegetables, fruits, herbs, and nuts. And even wine, meat, sausages and, of course, jamon!
The first mention of Boqueria dates back to 1217, when meat stalls were set up right outside the city gates. Since 1470, pigs have been sold at this place, and the market was called Mercat Bornet. In the future, straw was also sold on it, so the market became known as Mercat de la Palla (Straw Market). Then the future Boqueria was considered a continuation of the Plaza Nova market, but they were separated, and then they began to sell only fish and meat. In 1826, I was officially recognized, and in 1835 they decided to build a building for it.
Just in July of the same year, Convent del Carmelitas Descalços de Sant Josep ( Convent del Carmelitas Descalços de Sant Josep) burned down on the Rambla. In those years, Catalonia was undergoing a process of secularization under the program of Prime Minister Juan Mendisabal. By 1840, the building was already built on the model of the Parisian arcades. The architect was Mas Vila ( Mas Vilà) , and its spectacular train station-like roof was designed by Miquel de Bergue ( Miquel de Bergue).
Boquería is open from 8:00 to 20:30 every day except Sunday, which is strange for the market. He also has an official website.
Casa Bruno, Chinese House with Umbrellas and Dragon
Casa Bruno (Chinese House with Umbrellas and Dragon), Rambla, Barcelona
Directly opposite the Boqueria is another example of modernism. This time he imitates Chinese motifs. The facade is decorated with umbrella hats, instead of a sign on the corner of the house, a Chinese dragon is fixed, again with umbrellas, fans and a lantern. Its official name is Casa Bruno Cuadros ( Casa Bruno Cuadros/ Bruno Cuadras ), but the people call it simply house with umbrellas ( a casa dels paraigües).
Umbrella house, Rambla, Barcelona
Initially, it was just a shop selling umbrellas. The building itself was built in 1858. And in 1883, he decided to reconstruct it for the needs of the owner Josep Vilaseca i Casanovas ( Josep Vilaseca i Casanovas ). The result is one of the most beautiful buildings on the entire Rambla. By the way, it was this architect who built the Arc de Triomphe.

Plaza Reial, Barcelona
One of the most beautiful squares in Barcelona is Royal ( Plaça Real ). Its architectural landscape was shaped at the end of the 19th century by the architect Francesco Daniel Molina y Casamajo. But the lanterns for this square were made by Antonio Gaudi himself. In the center of the square stands the Three Graces Fountain.
Initially, they wanted to call it the Plaza of the Heroes of Spain.
Here, on the Royal Square, there is the legendary cafe “El Quatre Gats” (“Four Cats”).
Monument to Frédéric Soler
Monument to Frédéric Soler, Rambla, Barcelona
In a small square Pla del Teatra opposite the Principal Theater there is a monument Frederic Soler y Hubert ( Frederic Hubert
4), Frederic Hubert
who wrote under the pseudonym Serafí Pitarra ( Serafí Pitarra ). He is considered the founder of Catalan theatre.
The monument was erected in 1906 by Agustí Querol ( Agustí Querol ).
What else to see on the Rambla
Liceo Theatre. It was erected on the site of a monastery, and 11 years later, a series of misfortunes began in it, which began to be called the monastic curse.
Palau Güell. This is one of the creations of Gaudi, who created the face of modern Barcelona.
Other attractions in Barcelona
Las Ramblas – 5 famous streets of Barcelona
In almost every major city, or at least in the capital, there is some major street, boulevard, which is especially famous and is the hallmark of the city. If in Moscow such an attraction is the Arbat, in Paris – the Champs Elysees, then in Barcelona it is the Rambla or Las Ramblas. The very word “rambla” was borrowed from the Arabs and it is translated as a street formed in the bed of a dried up river.
Las Ramblas consists of five separate streets, each with its own points of interest, establishments or architectural monuments. The upper part of the Rambla starts from the Rambla de Canaletes. Here is the famous Canaletes Fountain, which has its own belief. So, according to legend, everyone who drinks water from this fountain will definitely return to Barcelona again. There is also a theater arch here, near which those residents and tourists who like to look at a real Barcelona bullfight gather.
Further on, the boulevard smoothly turns into the second part of the Rambla dels Estudis, where the bird market is concentrated, where anyone can buy a bird.
The third section of the Rambla is the flower street – Rambla de les Flores. There is also the La Boqueria covered market, where you can always choose absolutely fresh seafood, vegetables or fruits. Nearby is the creation of Joan Miro in the form of a mosaic work, which depicts a woman with a bird. This is a true classic of the Catalan avant-garde. On the same square stands the most remarkable house of Casa Bruno Quadras, the entire facade of which is decorated with open umbrellas. The fact is that earlier the creator of these umbrellas and their manufacturer lived in it.
The fourth street is the Rambla dels Caputxins, where the Capuchin monastery stands. The “Chinese District” is also located here, although there are very few Chinese left in this place. Nearby is the Plaza del Pi, where tourists like to relax.
