You have to walk down las ramblas just to say that you've been there but in reality it's just a market with street entertainment Overcrowded. Overpriced and overrated

Las Rambla was recommended to me by a friend as he said it was the heart of Barcelona but also warned me of pickpockets etc. All I can say is on my trip to Barcelona with my girlfriend we found ourselves strolling up Las Rambla in the early morning and in the late afternoon, whether it be for a red...

Enjoyed our stroll along this buzzing street. Lots of different stalls to purchase items from. It was very busy, and I think it is always busy. I would recommend you keep your valuables close to you, as we saw some characters who looked suspicious moving through the crowds but enjoyed our time here.

It is something one should visit but it is very busy, packed with people and quite the draw for pick pockets. Make it a short visit and move on to one of the more interesting and more enjoyable areas of Barcelona.

It's a normal street with some shops around. We've been told to avoid it at night as theft is common on this street. Anyway I didn't like the atmosphere there at night, it wasn't attractive and didn't seem safe. I'd rather have a walk there in the morning, when it is less crowded!

Just immerse yourself in the streetlife of this vibrant part of the city. We walked from Placa de Catalunya to the port, stopping off to peer into the intriguing streets to right and left of us but lingering longer in the colourful market. Street artists, performers, cafes, restaurants... they are all there. You might even get a friendly wave from... More

This is really just a paved path in the middle of two streets. With too many people and sellers of expensive souvenirs. Best to give it a miss and see other sites of the beautiful Barcelona.

A great place to spend hours people watching. Fun shopping and just a way to get the feel of the area. Best way to get from one side of the old city to the other side.

Located centrally, the street was for pedestrians only and offered varieties of shops with wide range of price. The major attraction was the street itself though where one would certainly enjoy a pleasant walk. With a festive like environment everywhere, we liked that a lot. However, the famous quote from Spanish poet Federico García Lorca, "It is only street in the... More
