Yes, Las Ramblas is a main attration and does house many local vendors/tourist shops. But, it is a street filled with hundreds of people from all over the world - wanting to get a taste of the culture. We found several great places for Tapas, as well as churros/chocolate, and gelato. It is more than safe to walk through during... More

Apart from it's architecture and the prevalence of trees and traditional lamposts by the side walk, I did not find Las Ramblas any much different from Singapore's Orchard Road. The pedestrian walk is much wider and it was less crowded I guess but that's about it. It's a nice place to do shopping in Barcelona and you can walk to... More

Just a short walk from where your ship docks, this is the the must see excursion of Barcelona. Slowly stroll up one side and return on the other. Explore some of the side steets. Be sure to find a tapas place for a quick meal. Watch the people. Take the usual good tourist precautions. Have a wonderful time.

Walking along las ramblas is a must do for everyone visiting Spain. Good bars, lots of street art, and a number of Local stalls. We did get to see some of the living statues which made it all the more interesting .

What a fantastic area, a great atmosphere day and night. We did not have any trouble in Barcelona at anytime in any area. We did not eat in La Rambla as we felt it was too expensive. We took to the side streets not far from our hotel (NH Podium Hotel), excellent real Spanish restaurants with excellent service and much... More

There were crowds everywhere, the restaurants were overpriced, shops better elsewhere and you have to constantly beware of pickpockets. The Boqueria Food Market however was fantastic.

I love La Rambla... it's just such a lively place. But... I have traveled to Barcelona 4 times in the last 6 years and was mortified that the Living Statues are virtually gone!!! I so looked forward to seeing them again. They make La Rambla so special, especially at night!! Instead of being all over La Rambla entertaining the tourists,... More

Walking along Las Ramblas is a great experience during the day, watching the entertainers, browsing the stalls, and just simply enjoying the atmosphere. So many places of interest just off the street too, great bars and squares etc. Super.Not quite so pleasant late at night though, expect to be hassled by "ladies of the night" who seemingly are more interested...

We visited Las Ramblas first thing when we arrived in Barcelona, but as we are a bit older it was to noisy, over populated and we felt that we were really ripped off with higher prices than elsewhere in Barcelona. As we were hungry and did not want to walk to far, there was a waiter in the street trying... More

Las Ramblas is one of the most interesting places to see in Barcelon. The streets are very busy and there are thousands of people walking it all the time. There are many stores and restaurants and this is a good place to watch people.
