We found a nice bar and sat and people watched will drinking a litre of sangria and eating tapas . The downside is the beggars and people trying to stall you tut whole you are eating ! Also men trying to offer you drugs !!! Better in the day less hassle !

Busy and vibrant strip in Barcelona, great for picking up some souvenirs on your travels to Barcelona. There is a small-ish supermarket and a visit to the market boqueria is a MUST! Gothic quarter is walkable distance away and there are also a few street entertainers along the way. Great place to people watch but, as with any city, watch... More

The first time I visited Barcelona 12 years ago I was horrified at the caged birds and the sheer volume of beggars. Not sure what kind of clearing up has happened but certainly something as it was altogether a MUCH better experience. LR was very busy but then why would it not be, as long as you don't mind dodging... More

What a great street to walk down So much to see. Restaurants were very good so much choice La Pomma is worth a visit. Very close to Catalunya square and the other end of La Rambkas U.S. The Marina.

This thoroughfare stretches for over a kilometer, from Placa de Catalunya to the Mirador de Colom by the Barcelona Port. This was the first site we took in on our arrival. A heady introduction to a memorable visit. Its a kaleidoscope of sights and sounds. People from all around the world taking in the daily sights of this great city.... More

Fantastic place to visit. So many shops and places to eat. I spent a few hours leisurely walking up and down the Ramblas enjoying good weather and trying to decide were I was going to eat. If in Barcelona you cannot leave without a visit to this place and treat yourself to something nice.

We were staying in a beautiful hotel in Las Ramblas, which is very central and convenient but it is full of pickpockets and bag snatchers. My husband was using the ATM outside of our hotel when a thief snatched his card and within ten minutes had taken thousands out of his account. We wasted an entire day at the police... More

This is like any of the most happening street of a big city. Full of vendors, people busy walking, restaurants lined up every where.

Anything that is interesting is all around Las Ramblas, but in it you'll find mostly tourist shops, pickpockets, huge crowds and tourist restaurants. The way to enjoy Las Ramblas is to begin a stroll from the port of Barcelona, and then northwest, to the Colombus monument, Palau Guell (http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g187497-d295879-r219235418-Palau_Guell-Barcelona_Catalonia.html#REVIEWS), rest and eat in "My Way" restaurant that is in an...

We went twice to this place. The Mercat la Bouqueria is awesome. The place throbs with activity. It is a catwalk of sorts with all types of people and stylish clothes. You could spend hours just chilling with tiur group or friends over beer or a glass of Spanish wine.

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.
