This was considered a “must do” for our short trip to Barcelona. I found the main street crowded and littered with tacky vendors trying to lure my kids to buy silly little toys. We walked down after our visit to the Picasso museum around dinner time. My goal was to find some place to eat and people watch. The streets... More

We did the Ramblas on a day when a couple of cruise ships were in and it's was nuts! The shops, vendors and street performers were amazing. There is something to see everywhere. I would recommend it highly!

You'll hear a lot about Las Ramblas in Barcelona, as if it's something you must do. Nah. It's not. It's just a collection of cheesy tourist popup shops, costumed beggars posing for euros, poor food, and skeevy souvenir stands. Barcelona is so lovely, don't waste your time here (it might as well be in Coney Island or Fisherman's Wharf or... More

In this street you can only walking and relax. In the other side, you can looking for someone interesting, or to choose one of the many good restaurants and bars to sit down to drink a sangria and taste a tapa. Amazing!

Okay...if you are in Barcelona, you'll definitely end up strolling Las Ramblas a couple of times. It's a "must do" for sure. But don't expect it to be the highlight of your trip and don't plan your time around it. It's a good stroll through the center of town, down to the waterfront, and there are interesting things to see... More

This market place has fun and interesting stalls selling all kinds of things. We enjoyed the late afternoon shade and loved the flower market area. There were many side alleys and stores that we didn't get into...the market also has fun food shops.

For years, I've heard about Las Ramblas as one of the prime attractions of Barcelona, but both my husband and I found it a bit tacky. We much preferred walking down some of the other avenues and along the port.

One of my favorite places of my trip to Barcelona and I don't even like shopping! great vibe, lots to see, however, don't come before 10am.. nothing is open yet. There are so many stands that sell the same thing, I can actually categorize them into few types of stands - food, memorabilia, plants. the memorabilia stands look tempting..especially since... More

Start at the top of las ramblas at the placa de catalunya and walk your way down. we walked right down to the christopher columbus statue on the harbour front. We went at different times of day and night and it is constantly buzzing. Loved the night time best, stopping off every now and then for beer and to people... More
