Worth a stroll. Lots of kiosks, gilato stands and pick pockets, so beware and keep purses secured in front and wallets in front pockets. Lots of restaurants which were10-20% over priced, so go off the beaten path to find better fare. Rambla Catalunya north west of the Plaza Cataluna is less crowded and has a better atmosphere.

I took a friend that had never been and it was just as I remembered 1 9 years ago. We were not in the mood for shopping but appreciated the scene and myriad of options available.

Las Ramblas has lost its lure for me since my last visit, while the market tents are still there, the street entertainers are no more the local people told us this was due to the increasing amount of pick pockets making money from people who were watching the entertainers how sad as usual greedy dishonest people have spoiled what was...

Being a native of Louisiana, we have a reputation of a the wild, crazy city in New Orleans. As my wife and I visited Barcelona for the first time, I wanted to see if Las Ramblas lived up to the hype I read about online. It did!!! Las Ramblas is one of the most animated cities I have ever visited... More

Opt to stay within walking distance of this place. The best, best food ever - tapas at St. Josep Mercata, numerous restaurants to choose from. Unbelievable!

Stayed at a hotel right off of Las Ramblas, which was really nice to just walk out and your on the street. So much to see on this strip food, stores, pubs. Like any other place you visit you need to be aware of pickpockets out there. Fabulous Tapas along the walk way.

Yes, Las Ramblas is packed full of tourists doing just what we were doing - seeing and being seen. We recently spent a pleasant 3 hours strolling, noshing, and ogling the people and the wares. Though busy and crowded, it has an attractive vibe all its own. Artists, shops, eateries, mimes, souvenir stands, sculptures, mosaics underfoot, and a hodge podge... More

It was fun with a lot of life, but it was nothing too special. A lot of people trying to sell things, and a lot of people trying to pick your pocket! Hold on to your wallets!

Spent a lot of time there! Walked from the start at City Center and down to Christopher Columbus Statue to the waterfront and Port. Great experience! Lots of things to see, shop, eat and do! The Market right in the middle is incredible. Stopped for a light dinner at one of the sidewalk cafes of Tapas and Sangria which wasn't... More

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.
