La Rambla de la Llibertat is one of the most emblematic streets in Girona. It's an urban space where people come for a stroll, and it's lined by a number of buildings of cultural interest, such as the Casa Norat. Created in the 18th century to host a market, its name comes from l'Arbre de la Llibertat (The Tree of Freedom), which was planted in 1869 during the Sexenio Democrático, a period of Spanish history that followed the success of a revolution in September 1868 and lasted until the restoration of the Bourbons in 1874. La Rambla was originally made up of a wide, long square that ran from C/ de l'Argenteria to C/Abeuradors, then continued as a narrow street to the Pont de Pedra (Stone Bridge). Today, it continues to be a popular place for locals to walk and meet.
