Not what I expected but still plenty to see.

It doesn't have a busy market feel like I was expecting which I guess in some ways is good as you have plenty of walking space. There are tons of shops off to the side and a nice... read more

It's just a street that you can find all the same shops in wherever you come from, the only interesting part is the market. For is absolute ripoff, 3 tapas+paella 10.95€ sangria 11€ must have drink! Not worth it

Las Ramblas is the main walking street of Barcelona, going from one of the main squares to the wharf. Lots of outdoor restaurants. Crowds of people and a lot of little tents/shops. It's a lot seedier than it was 20 years ago. I don't think you want to buy anything in the fifty or so little booths. But you should... More

To get the feel of the city it is a must do. Not my favorite. It is very crowded and reminds me of Time Square in New York. But if you walk it all the way to the water and Christopher Columbus statue it is OK. You can go off the street and walk on some of the side streets... More

La Rambla or las ramblas, that goes from the Colon monument to the Plaça catalunya, is a myth and the best known landmark in Barcelona. It must be seen for this reason, but I honestly don't like the place, noisy, too crowded, it is spoiled by so many cheap stores, fast foods, and street peddlers, it also is a place... More

In August this is crowded and there are various street acts. Be careful that your possessions are well protected as it is a perfect place for pickpockets (even though I saw no evidence of it here) There are street sellers but remember the adage " you get what you pay for!". Certainly worth a visit and there are plenty of... More

I loved walking through Las Ramblas. The street performers were fascinating, and there were so many interesting shops and boutiques. I particularly enjoyed the flower section and the part with the birds. La Boqueria was phenomenal, so don't miss it! I regret that we had lunch at one of the Las Ramblas cafes before we got to la Boqueria because... More

Las Ramblas fully represents the image of Barcelona. Full of shops and street aryists and little places to eat. It's all very trendy.. except there are almost only tourists. Like via del Corso in Rome it has become a name to atrract shopping tourism so now you will see all the most famous brands in la Rambla. I don't know... More

Las Ramblas is just a street with a few buskers and shops and pickpockets! Its dirty, and I actually felt threatened by beggars and obvious prostitutes and brazen pickpockets. Barcelona has fabulous shopping in many areas. Great beaches, flamenco entertainment and great restaurants abound, give Las Ramblas a miss. The low life that call this area home make this area...

An absolute hive of activity. We stayed next door to the boqueria markets a few steps off la ramblas. You have the cataluna square on the top end of la ramblas where all the tour busses and airport bus leave from and the bottom end is the marina/beach end. Tonnes of restaurants and shops. And street entertainers along the way.... 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.
