The construction of this street was part of the first major urban development of “sponging” in the city of Barcelona, which was still walled.
A wide and straight street opened connecting La Rambla with the Ciutadella, crossing the labyrinthine medieval streets.
Beyond wanting to make streets more hygienic and safer, the project had a military purpose, facilitating the movement of troops from the Ciutadella to the urban center, as well as hindering the construction of barricades or the closure of streets.
The name was given in honor of the Infanta Isabel de Borbón y Borbón, also known as “la chata”. In 1932, during the Second Republic, it was renamed Calle Pablo Iglesias (in honor of the founder of the PSOE), but in 1939, after the Civil War, its original name was reinstated.
