A a very vibrant curiosity more than an attraction where people do no more than stroll the length of the boulevard as it connects with the side streets to the more attractive older areas of the city and starts at the main square ending at the port . Is not unpleasant but beware at night as the lunies come out... More

Lots of talk about what a great place/experience this is - it is more of a tourist trap. It's fine for a stroll but very busy and unless you sit in a cafe, where you will be charged exhorbitant prices (10 euros for a beer) for very mediocre food and service, there is nowhere to sit. (There are nicer places... More

We used the Rick Steves' pocket guide for Barcelona and his 'Ramblas Ramble'. Lots of great info in his guide and even some Roman ruins just off the Ramblas. Don't miss La Boqueria Market, the Miro mosaic in the center of the Ramblas and the Columbus Monument at the bottom. As said before, stay alert for pickpockets.

Way too crowded and commercialized for my taste. Altho the gran teatre del liceu is here, and I loved the opera I attended. Otherwise, I had no problem avoiding this area and exploring the gotic quarter. Was in the area for two weeks, and just didn't get excited by this area. I saw at least three people pick pocketed (hint,... More

Very vivid street. Liked it especially in the evening hours after sunset. There was a dark spot with some prostitutes that can be a bit annoying. One of them slammed me on the back when I passed, which I of course experienced as intimidating.

Las ramblas, the thoroughfare that thousands walk down every day. It is an interesting walk with lots of stalls and restaurants to part you from your money. Most of the stalls sell tourist stuff, the kind of thing you take home when you need to give someone a souvenir. Very rarely there is something of great worth or beauty. Along... More

This street / walkway is so vibrant filled with people of all sorts that you can just sit and watch people for hours and hours. Nice restaurants with good food and prices and the best fresh... More

Really nice tree lined street to walk down however did not feel I experienced any real spanish culture or unique sights/experiences like I was expecting. Stalls and shops just sold your traditional tourist tat, restaurants were overpriced. There were a handful of artists/charicaturists towards the monument end and a few human statues which should be given some credit however really... 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.
