Great place to take an evening walk, a street full of life and motion. Tons of things for sale, for tourists or people longing for ice cream. It takes you down to the beautiful harbour. Also plenty of places to eat, sometimes right there on the street. We read about many many restaurants on TA and unfortunately almost all have... More

Was a bit apprehensive based on other reviews, conversations with friends and family who had been to Barcelona before. We did not experience any pickpockets or any other safety issues. I would equate it to NYC Times Square. Mind your business, be polite and don't be flashy and you won't have problems. Go to the market just off La Ramblas,... More

this vibrant street connects two amazing parts of the city, plaza Catalonia and the harboor of Barcelona. this place is always busy day and night. i've came across many blogs wearning people from the southern part of las ramblas. but i don't think there is anything to be worried about unless you are a single lady walking on your own....

We stayed in Barcelona for 3 day… what a beautiful and exciting city. Hopefully the future will hold another trip for us and we can continue exploring the city.

Fro the placa catlunya all the way down, Las Ramblas is THE street of Barcelona. Restaurants, shops and street vendors galore it is never dull or empty. Though you are advised to watch out for bag-snatchers I encountered no problems and the heavy police presence means that it is quite safe. In the middle of it is n excellent farmer's... More

Another must in Barcelona. Borders the Gothic district so you can do both. This boulevard is for walking people in the middle. The cars go single lane on borders. Lots of street vendors and at night, street performers. Plenty of dining choices along the way. Fun for kids too!!

It's a very nice walk up and down with many things to do and amazing street performers. Specially on that pay attention to the many "pickpockets" which are storming the place and specially to the crowded places of street performers...!

There is nothing to gain here except from being able to tell people that you have actually been here. Rued staff and street vendors, selling nothing but expensive plastic garbage, hustlers and thiefs. And beggars . Go somewhere else.

Everyone who heard we were off to Barcelona said " watch your bag" but our visit was completely different. There were lots of police around and so I suspect they are clamping down on the bad gangs and maybe in August (when everyone leaves Barcalona) the gangs may go too. However we saw no trouble, no gangs of pickpockets, no... More

This is the place to go in Barcelona, just not for us! We had our 5 year old with us and it was so busy we had a hard job keeping hold of him. Could not even get in the market. Saying that, the streets off the left side looking down are really lovely for a stroll to the Cathedral.
