La Ramblas is a must if one is visiting Barcelona. It's great place and the best time to visit La Ramblas is in the evening.

Seriously, this place is a thievery paradise. Both on the streets and in the cafe's. I've never been scammed so hard and repetitively like on Las Rambles. They ought to close it down really. Its not fun spending money when you are getting robbed at the same time. No police around whatsoever, even with the documented high crime. That tells... More

To be honest before I went to Barcelona everyone told me to go and walk around Las Ramblas, our hotel was just off it so we had to walk through it every day. It was ok but not my most favourite area of Barcelona and I was told to watch out for pickpockets. Not only are people trying to distract... More

La Ramblas is a must visit if one is visiting Barcelona. Situated close to Barri Gotic and old churches & buildings one gets to see beautiful architecture all around - all within walking distance. Loads of gift shops and eating joints can be found on the Main Street as well as in the narrow side lanes though prices are high.... More

You should visit it but don't plan to spend all day (or night) there. It can be very busy, there's quite a few market stalls but I think if you go down some of the side streets you'll find there's much more to enjoy in Barcelona.

Nice atmosphere at times but fed up of harassment by street sellers after a while. Perhaps if I was 20 years younger and on a hen weekend intent on getting drunk I would have loved it more.... lol.

But with way more than 40 thieves. Most of the so-called restaurants here go beyond the tourist-trap concept to sometimes breaking the law overcharging ridiculous prices using mischieving tactics. There are not waiters, but warriors, fighting against defenceless customers that commit the mistake of sitting at the sun to have a beer and some "tapas". An absolut shame in a... More

Only carry cash, leave your credit cards in your hotel and superglue your phone to a body part. Once you have followed these instructions then you are ready to have a laugh and a few drinks. It is a good place to go, but you MUST be prepared. Oh and if you are silly enough to not be prepared then... More

Came here on a beautiful summer day in June. It was crowded, as expected. Las Ramblas is basically a tree-lined sidewalk with tents of vendors selling little trinkets mostly geared towards tourists. I did buy a really great leather purse for 10 euro here though. If you walk down Las Ramblas it won't seem spectacular but I recommend using a... More

The Ramblas must have been lovely in the 19th century. Unfortunately it's now a complete tourist trap roamed by pickpockets and worse. If you've never been to Barcelona it's possibly worth a brisk walk along but otherwise avoid.
