Las Ramblas is the beating heart of Barcelona, Spain. It is teeming with people, shops, restaurants and cafes. I just love this place. Manuel.

Las Ramblas used to be a nice boulevard to enjoy a relaxed walk with family or friends, do some shopping, have a beer and "tapas", etc., but not anymore. Unfortunately, it is now usually too crowded and a victim of its success, particularly in summer. In the evenings and at night it is even worse because it has become a... More

Very busy walking up or down the street, full of tourists, the market at the top end was interesting and worth a walk around. Many street artists along the street. Personally we preferred to wander off down the side streets and explore the alleyways ourselves, stumbling across cafes, bars and shops. Great fun getting away from the hustle and bustle,... More

This is just a street with stalls flanked on both sides. I see no reason that screams interesting or beautiful. The lights at night is sparse, a far far far cry from Paris. The Ai Wei Wei museum is worth a look though. Other than that, most of the attention is on own belongings and the ever present police. If... More

...have been here a couple of times and each time I hope to get a better experience: sadly it just does not get better on Las Ramblas! It is a tourist trap and lacks magnetism. There are other more authentic less chaotic boulevard type experiences in beautiful Barcelona. As a brand Las Ramblas over-promises and under-delivers!

I loved the shops in La Ramblas. Went to the market and bought pistachio nuts for munchies in the hotel. There are various shops and it was just nice to stumble on them while rambling.

This is one wide long boulevard with many vendors selling so many things...flowers, scarves, t-shirts, wallets, purses, ice-cream, souvenirs etc. There are street jugglers, various people painted and acting out mimes as you place money in their containers. So neat! One morning as we were having breakfast at one of the cafes, a little old lady came holding out a... More

Relax and take a great stroll! Start at Placa de le Catalunya and stroll down Las Ramblas to Barcelona’s harbor where is more to do and see. This city is vibrant and a short block or two off the main Rambla will take you to the Gothic Quarter, the city’s Cathedral of the Holy Cross and Saint Eulalia and cool... More

I'd head a lot about Las Ramblas before I arrived in Barcelona. I was really disappointed in reality. This street was clearly once really beautiful and cultured. Now, it's just a tourist trap. Cheap shops and eateries. Lots of people touting fake goods. Go a couple of streets either side of it into El Raval or Gotic and you'll have... More
