Nice place to walk around at evening time. Had a nice Paella and some beers with a group of friends.

Enjoy Las Ramblas, it is a wonderful experience, but always be on your guard!!! Tourists are a target for thieves in all major cities, and Barcelona is no exception. Las Ramblas, being such a great attraction there will always be undesirables ready in waiting for vulnerable tourists. Advice - Do not show Bulky items on view in your pockets, have... More

Visited Las Ramblas a year ago. What a disappointment! The place is just a tourist trap full of souvenir's shops and overpriced restaurants. I found the people to be rude and uninterested. I speak Spanish fluently and was able to understand the remarks made by the locals once they walked away from you. It seemed to me that tourists bother... More

...We visited La Ramblas on January 6th, the 3 Kings holiday and it was very quiet - probably the best time to walk along this historic road. We witnessed no pick pockets and never once felt worried. The craft vendors seemed very bored and the wares they peddled seemed to be manufactured in China. We did enjoy the warm weather... More

This rambling shopping market is outdoors in a pleasant setting. Don't be lulled by the fragrant smells and colorful wares - it is a pickpocket's paradise! As a popular tourist area it is well known for it's crime. Visit this market but keep your valuables hidden and safe for the most enjoyable experience in downtown Barcelona.

Stayed in hotel on la Ramblas, big mistake. Road is smelly and tacky and coloured our whole trip to Barcelona. Apart from Gaude's architecture , Barcelona held no affection and our two day visit was enough.

This is a a must see attraction , just to say that you have done it and not been robbed - There seems to be a myth that the place is full of bag snatchers - thankfully we did not meet any. Lots of shops and street sellers - great ice cream both stands and shops - in fact one... More

Supposed to be the heart of Barcelona, the boulevard offers very little of anything interesting. Just overpriced restaurants and tourist shops that you can find anywhere. Lots of annoying promoters and dealers. The only good experience there was the artisan market held on the very beginning of Ramblas on a Sunday. Other than that I'd recommend to avoid this street...

Regretfully this historic walking street is now mostly trashy tourist stores with pickpockets everywhere. Try the side streets and squares.
