Lots of people and lots of shops. Fun strolling and grand architecture to look at. Detour to the Palou Guell. Amazing Early 20th century palace with strong medeval and renessiance elements. Touristy? Yes, but fun anyway.

One the main attraction of Barcelona. You do not eat Tapas.in this place and choose far end of the city. Shops in this place more expensive than other side of the city. Just walk.

A must do for Barcelona to soak up the city. This street runs from near the cost up to the catalunya metro station. It has lots of small local shops with many many souvenirs. Outside cafés are all along the routes, some flower stalls.

One cannot visit Barcelona without walking theRamblas. It is fantastic. The street or pavement actors are out of this world. You also must visit the indoor market on the left hand side as you leave the port. Nothing like it in the UK. Also venture down the side streets, which is full of hotels and shops side by. It is...

I was surprised having heard so many things about Barcelona, I had assumed Las Ramblas was an area of bars and clubs but actually it was just a crowded tourist area with not much to do. Overpriced restaurants and unfriendly tourists not to mention having to be careful of your bag. The touristy areas do not appeal much to me.

It was an interesting, leisure walk, a lot to see, buy, eat. Doesn't cost a thing to walk. Sort of like giant flea market

Great place to walk by. Beautiful catwalk with stores and people from all around the world where you can hear many different languages spoken by the people, original street artists, souvenirs, etc etc. Great place to drink something and enjoy the view and the activity around.

My husband and I visited Barcelona this summer and stayed in a hotel within a few blocks of the main Rambla. We also walked the Rambla del Raval, which was actually preferable to the area that most think of when speaking of Las Ramblas. The main touristy street is definitely worth visiting, though. Unfortunately, most of the shopping in the... More

One of the most famous streets in Barca but its not worth all the hype, we are constantly told about pick pockets so beware. It does connect the harbour to the city though so it is worth the experience

Staying in La Rambla

Neighborhood Profile
La Rambla
Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry riverbed. Now, La Rambla is a 1200-meter boulevard, and a major draw for visitors. During the day, La Rambla fills with pedestrians, some of which stroll past impressive human statues and artists while others take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and appetizing selections of local produce and specialty meats and treats. While it’s important for tourists to keep an eye on their belongings at all times, this area is most safely explored in the daytime and is a must see for everyone who visits.
