About Avenida Antonio Gaudi:

The Street was originally cut through the city in 1927 as part of an urban reform plan to prepare the city for the 1929 international exhibition. However, the origins of the idea can be traced back to an urbanisation project from 1907 conceived by frances Leon Jaussely to provide views of the hospital from the Sagrada Familia.

Originally the name of the street was Avenida General Primo de Rivera (former Spanish dictator that ruled from 1923 to 1930) until adopting its current name in 1962.

1985 was the inauguration of a renovation to the street to pedestrianise it. At each end of the first three sections are cast iron modernist lampposts designed by Pere Falques with a base of stone sculpted by Alfons Jujol and the metal forged by Manuel Ballarin. The six Lampposts, that date from 1909, were located in the plaza del Cinco de Oros but they were removed for obstructing traffic and kept in storage until finally being moved to Avenida Antonio Gaudi in 1985.
