Supposed to be the heart of Barcelona, the boulevard offers very little of anything interesting. Just overpriced restaurants and tourist shops that you can find anywhere. Lots of annoying promoters and dealers. The only good experience there was the artisan market held on the very beginning of Ramblas on a Sunday. Other than that I'd recommend to avoid this street...

Regretfully this historic walking street is now mostly trashy tourist stores with pickpockets everywhere. Try the side streets and squares.

A must visit when you are in the city of Barcelona. Plenty to see, lots of interesting stalls and shops you can pop in and out. Don't forget to look up when walking along the strip as there is lots of beautiful building above your head. Go and enjoy.

My husband and I spent a few days before Christmas in Barcelona just recently . We had a chance to spend a couple of hours walking and exploring The Ramble. Take it for what it is worth. A busy, exciting walk through the streets and being open to any new tastes or sight experiences. Yes it is busy and yes... More

Nice street with few quirky acts/stalls but overpriced restaurants and full of people trying to deceive you of your money

Although Las Ramblas is a bit touristy and crowded at times, it is a great place to experience the local culture, foods, drinks etc. Besides the crowds of tourists, las ramblas is filled with street artists and performers, tapas shops, souvenir and other retail shops, and is home to Mercado de La Boqueria market, which is a great place to...

What a lovely area to wander. My boyfriend and I wandered the streets and it was gorgeous. The lights and the restaurants and the street artists. It was a lovely, relaxed atmosphere. It was somewhere that you could just wander down and see what was going on, but you could also get involved and have a drink or a bite... More

We walked all the way down Las Ramblas calling in at some of the many cafes on the way! Terrific atmosphere and do stop off at La Boqueria Market - fantastic sights, food and restaurants inside.

Very Nice place to walk, drink, shop and eat Spanish Tapas...but in the back of your head you got to keep thinking about pick-pocketers...so keep you cash in a safe place and enjoy the experience.

This place is a must if you're in Barcelona. The hustle and bustle is truly amazing and the street entertainers will have you in stitches. The little artisan bakeries and shops off the main strip are well worth a look. Me and wife absolutely loved it here and we will be back again in May
