Overpriced food, lots of touristic vendors, fear of pickpockets - this place is nothing special in my opinion. Go judge for yourself but it won't stick in my memory.

This is a really nice place if you enjoy the hustle and bustle. It is incredibly busy and you do need to be vigilant in relation to pick pockets though i felt very safe due to the huge amount of security present. On contrast at either end of las ramblas is placa catalunya and the maria.. both of which are... More

A seething mass of humanity during the day...not worth the stroll except to get to other sites such as La Boqueria or Barri Gotic. Getting pickpocketed here may be the highlight...but we escaped that adventure. Do it once to see for yourself. A few good street performers at the lower end. Seems to vary from day-to-day

If you are in Barcelona you will end up here no matter what if you want to go to some other attraction in the city. The area is very crowded and I found it nice to walk along at night as it was less crowded. Plenty of restaurants along the way and number of stalls selling your general tourist items.... More

This was a very cool spot. Very trendy bars, shops, restaurants. The only thing to watch out for pick pocketers. I wore over shoulder bag under sweater for protection .

Very busy, touristy walking area ... lots of vendors and restaurants ... I found it way to busy and loud/touristy and tried to avoid it after we walked it the first time which was hard given our hotel was on Las Ramblas. Not sure if I would try any of the restaurants here .. .check them on tripadvisor before going.

Know before you go - you've got to go to La Rambla but you probably are not going to love it. La Rambla is a pedestrian mall that runs from Placa Catalunya down to the water (Port Vell) and ends at the famous Christopher Columbus monument and waterfront. There really is nothing special about La Rambla - it's a place... More

People said to us before me and girlfriend went about how much we should be careful of pickpockets and so on. Yeah granted, you should always be on the look out, but so you should in any country and in any major tourist place. There are a lot if police strolling up and down the La Rambla, so just be... More

If you want the worst food in Barcelona go to Las Ramblas! You have to go and see it but no need to go back. Barcelona is my favorite city in the World, it has everything. Unfortunately Las Ramblas is where pick pockets are wandering around, and most restaurants are let's say owned by non Spanish investors from Eastern Europe.... More

Unfortunately it's necessary to walk down the Ramblas to get to other attractions. It's crammed with people and street vendors. Just not my thing. If you like being jostled and possibly have your pockets picked, step right up.
