Well,this place is always congested with people of all kinds esp.tourists who like sidewalks,restaurants,stores and lots of people as well as pick-pocketeers. After all it´s free so why complain if there´s plenty of people and the funniest part is,tourists like to go to places highly popularised and recommended by tourist bureaus from other countries. Amazingly,pick-pocketeers also highly recommend this place... More

What a disappointment this area was especially during the later hours of the night. Constant hassle to visitors offering absolutely everything but no one seemed to know where Charlie was! I stupidly thought Barcelona would be attractive and lively, if it is then it is definitely not in this area. Avoid if you can especially after 9pm in the evening... More

We visited las ramblas because I'd read it was a main sight in Barcelona. However, when we got there, there were sooo many people. Everybody wears their rucksacks on their fronts because of pick pocketers, we could hardly walk next to each other, we couldn't see/get to any of the market stalls, the indoor market was just as crowded and...

A great place to stop and sit on a sidewalk café and watch the people go by. It's great entertainment and with an order of tapas and a glass of wine, you'll have fun.

It is a pretty tree lined street with centre paved and various stalls up and down it. If you like the hustle and bustle this is the street for you, but beware of pickpockets! If you prefer a quieter experience then arrive early in the day and watch the various stall holders set up.

You may love it, you may not but this is Barcelona and you cannot miss it... From the square at one end to the pier at the other...this is the quickest way to experience Barcelona's essence

This long, wide and green avenue is a nice site. But tourists, souvenir shops and pick pockets have invaded it. It is not as attractive anymore.

I have been to Barcelona before and after 4 years expectation were high High in Spanish culture and feeling but disappointed they seem to have lost their origins. Food was more pizza / burgers than tapas Serving of Sangria for tourists was inferior to what locals were served Defo take a wander through the side streets for more authentic feel... 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.
