La Ramblas is a must visit if one is visiting Barcelona. Situated close to Barri Gotic and old churches & buildings one gets to see beautiful architecture all around - all within walking distance. Loads of gift shops and eating joints can be found on the Main Street as well as in the narrow side lanes though prices are high.... More

You should visit it but don't plan to spend all day (or night) there. It can be very busy, there's quite a few market stalls but I think if you go down some of the side streets you'll find there's much more to enjoy in Barcelona.

Nice atmosphere at times but fed up of harassment by street sellers after a while. Perhaps if I was 20 years younger and on a hen weekend intent on getting drunk I would have loved it more.... lol.

But with way more than 40 thieves. Most of the so-called restaurants here go beyond the tourist-trap concept to sometimes breaking the law overcharging ridiculous prices using mischieving tactics. There are not waiters, but warriors, fighting against defenceless customers that commit the mistake of sitting at the sun to have a beer and some "tapas". An absolut shame in a... More

Only carry cash, leave your credit cards in your hotel and superglue your phone to a body part. Once you have followed these instructions then you are ready to have a laugh and a few drinks. It is a good place to go, but you MUST be prepared. Oh and if you are silly enough to not be prepared then... More

Came here on a beautiful summer day in June. It was crowded, as expected. Las Ramblas is basically a tree-lined sidewalk with tents of vendors selling little trinkets mostly geared towards tourists. I did buy a really great leather purse for 10 euro here though. If you walk down Las Ramblas it won't seem spectacular but I recommend using a... More

The Ramblas must have been lovely in the 19th century. Unfortunately it's now a complete tourist trap roamed by pickpockets and worse. If you've never been to Barcelona it's possibly worth a brisk walk along but otherwise avoid.

You will undoubtedly come across La Rambla at some point on your trip, which is a wide road with pedestrianised access. Worth a quick look, especially the food market (Mercat Bodequia) where you can get great smoothies and slices of iberian ham/cheese! Lots of trains go from Placa Catalunya too, if you want to head out of the city (wine... More

Was probably once a lovely street, the heart of the city and where everything was going on. It's not now. I don't feel I would have missed anything at all had I not been. The market nearby is very nice and prices reasonable but all the street vendors and cafes are vastly overpriced and really not all that. It's OK... More

Unlike others who seem to think this is a must when visiting Barcelona my view is it's a place that's hard to avoid rather a must see. I actually thought it had become rather seedy since my last visit some years ago particularly later in the afternoon and into the evening. The crowds outside KFC and MacDonalds in particular are...
