The Rausell Tree

In the Plaza del Prado, there is a cement tree with leaves of metal, and this is called the Rausell Tree. In 1880 the mayor, called Rausell, allowed the farmers to display their wares in the plaza for free as long as the tree remained permanently in the plaza. Otherwise the plaza would be returned to the Rausell family. When the tree died, the farmers held it up with stones to be able to continue using the plaza. Today there is a cement tree there.
