The Paseo de Colon was the first attempt to connect (in occasion of the Universal Exposition of 1888) the Montju´c’s Mountain with the Universal Exposition site in the Ciutadella Park, with a large avenue. It was built where the old Roman’s Wall was once located.

The walk had initially a central petonal platform, circulating the traffic rolled by the sides. On the central platform, were planted two rows of palm trees, which still characterize the walk today, and which over time was popularly baptized by the locals as a rubble’s walk.

At the end of the Universal Exposition, this walk turned into a wharf and later to be a militarize area.

Fortunately, in 1992, Barcelona was chosen for the most important sporting event in the world: the Olympic Games, the perfect ocassion to rescue the maritime coast, the beaches and the maritime fašade of the city.

With this renovation, the passeig, that started at the end of Las Ramblas, just where is located the Columbus Monument with its special gazer, it continue until the new Olympic Port and it was built the Moll de la Fusta: the result was a beautiful and pleasant palm tree promenade.

In it first years, the restaurants and bars with its terraces located in the Moll de la Fusta, became the social center of the night life of the city, specially the Gambrinus Restaurant.
