My girlfriend & I spent hours walking up & down Las Ramblas. She loves looking in souvenir shops so this was heaven for her as the were a lot of souvenir shops lining both sides of the street. There are plenty of places to eat from Chinese to Italian. There are street artists towards the bottom then the great Columbus... More

This street is full of life. I had read about it before we reached Barcelona and was not all that excited as all big cities have a main street with lots of stuff going on. But once we went there we just fell in love with the whole atmosphere. Nice wide area in the middle of the street for people... More

This is one of those places that most guide box will mention almost as a must see, but for me it has no attraction. Essentially, its a really long street lined on either side by shops, bars and eateries. The place attracts street artists and cheap handbag salesmen. Atmosphere is quite good, but its much like any other busy city... More

I had heard so much about las ramblas that I had put aside half a day to discovering its treasures. I was so disappointed to find it simply contains florists, street artists and tat. Honestly I felt so cheated. The mood isn't helped when people are stepping in your way every few metres to drive you into their cafes and... More

Strolling Las Rambles is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. Lots of small, outdoor cafés, newspaper stands and people watching opportunities. But do not miss the market. It's an amazing amalgamation of fruits, vegetables, fish, meat, spices and wonderful little restaurants at which to try local specialities, including wine. It's a feast for the eyes and the stomach.

Las Ramblas was a fun place for us to stroll about and catch some sights - the mimes, especially and to shop for some gifts.

Las Ramblas is full of life, but the shops and food are so-so. Walk down Las Ramblas once so you can at least tell yourself that you have been there and know what it is like. Be careful of your personal belongings.

We stayed in a Hotel on the Las Ramblas so we saw it night and day. Lots of interesting people and shops,stalls, bar and resturants. Changes at night so worth more then one visit.

Las Ramblas were full even in February, especially during the weekend, but still worth a stroll. Lots of restaurants, lots of shops, great atmosphere.

A lot to do and explore there... Most of the shops and restaurant are too pricey, but still you can enjoy the view.

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.
