We were through Las Ramblas in late April 2015 and, while a nice place, it was more of what you would expect of a pure 'tourist zone'. Prices seemed higher than elsewhere in the city which was in line with the advice from several locals 'go see it, but don't spend money there'. The Sangria was 'so-so' but the people-watching...

If in Barcelona you have to walk the Rambla at least once. But it is very crowded and lots of street vendors that want to sell you everything for a premium. It can be nice to watch the artists do their thing but one walk along the Rambla is enough. Take the back streets. They are much more inviting, more... More

It's a very long street in Barcelona steeped in history, with its architecture, a long side modern shops, lots of street market sellers and mime/statue artists, it truly is the heart and soul of Barcelona. Down towards the docks there is still plenty of evidence from the spanning civil war.

While the walk down the Ramblas is a necessity in Barcelona and many of the nearby sights are well worth while (the Cathedral, the market etc), over the last 20 years the Ramblas itself has become a caricature of its former self. If living statues, candy floss, gelato and excessive drinking are your thing, by all means spend your time... More

A major let down for Barcelona which I think is a beautiful city. Las Ramblas from Catalunya is full of tacky rubbish and unbearably busy. The restaurants have over inflated prices and the food cannot touch some of the restaurants in other areas. As you get closer to the coast at the other end things do improve a little as... More

La Rambla is best described as a central street to the hustle and bustle of Barcelona which leads directly down to the port. We walked here several times during our stay. The street is a tourist trap however there is plenty to see with the busy atmosphere that surrounds. Walking in the right direction through the Gothic Quarter may lead... More

Nice place to walk and eat, specially at night. There are lots and lots of people having fun, and I recommend pay attention with the pick pockets.... I recommend also stay in a hotel near Las Ramblas, because is a very central place in Barcelona and you can go in a walk distancy to many touristics places.

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.
