I came to Barcelona in February 2014 and I am returning again in 2015. Las Ramblas is amazing!! It is full of life and things to see and buy. The street performers are amazing!! There are restaurants, shops and stalls lining the whole of Las Ramblas so there is always something to see or do.

it's a normal street with kiosks in the middles, some street performers and shops on the sides, it was very crowded, and if you are not concentrating, you can easily get robbed! it happened to us a few times, and the police over there isn't really cooperative in assisting with the theft issues. there are better places to shop and...

This place is never completely quiet. Full with excitement, you pop-on this street, and just go with the flow! It's full with fun, noise, mixed cultures. It is very touristic, but in a good way. And I found it so amazing, how getting off this street into any of the smaller or bigger crossing streets again opened an another new... More

For the main strip of a major city this really is the pits. Pick pockets line the streets making the place really uncomfortable. Rip off markets. Street entertainment not worth the visit unless you want your hand bag raided. Terrible overpriced restaurants. Why bother. Sums up a lot of the Barcelona experience.

We had a walk down Las Ramblas after visiting la Boqueria food market. lt was mid afternoon and fairly quiet, so was a pleasant stroll along a wide car free street. There were a few live statues and some stalls selling souvenirs and that was about it. Avoid the restaurants and cafes in la Ramblas as they are tourist traps... More

Always worth a visit when in Barcelona. The street artists, vendors, people all make this a great place for people watching. Beware of eating or drinking though, not the best quality and definitely a place where they rely on tourism as opposed to repeat customers.

Seems like a really nice area to take a walk and visit some of the stores. We didn't have a lot of time to browse. If we go back we'd like to spend more time here.

We have just returned from Barcelona for a second time. This place is so overwhelming, basically it never stops being busy. Unlike the first time there where I found it very scary, this time I felt a lot more relaxed. Having a very high police presence was a welcomed surprise. You still can not let your guard down and have... More

If you go to BCN you have to walk Las Ramblas up and down to really understand the spanish lifestyle. Las Ramblas is one of the lifelines of the city since it has all you need shopping, restaurants, bars, sightseeing, hotel and nightlife. We started our tour in Las Ramblas since it has a visitor center from which you can... More

La Rambla is simply a wide street in Barcelona, with lots of stalls selling food and drinks, trash and trinkets. The first time that we walked up the street was at 9 am and the stalls were not open and there was nobody about. When we returned in the early afternoon, it was wall to wall people and you could...
