Top ways to experience Rambla Del Raval and nearby attractions

The area
Address
Neighborhood: El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.

The beautiful Metropolitan Barcelona has many oasis, squares, parks, gardens.
Rambla del Raval is one of them.
It is a park - 25 meter wide and 250 meter long - between the two lanes of the avenue Rambla del Raval.
Rambla del Raval is situated between Carrer de l'Hospital and Carrer de Sant Pau.
This Rambla is an oxygenating lung in the heart of Raval.
The park is qiute new, about 20 years old.
Bordered by palm trees and cafés it is wonderful to sit here.
Raval is colorful mixture of nationalities, and this Rambla attracts visitors and locals from different social, cultural and geographical backgrounds.
Don´t miss Rambla del Raval, when you walk around in Raval.

First you should visit the oldest church in Barcelona, "Sant Pau del Camp".
From there you walk about 150 meters to the Rambla del Raval.
The square is somehow fascinating. Botero's cat fits perfectly in this square. Just let the square work its magic on you. You should definitely visit the small snack bars on the left. Then go up the square and on the Carrer de l'Hospital turn right about 500 meters and you will come to the Rambla and also to the Mercat de la Boqueria.

One of the lesser known Ramblas in Barcelona is the Rambla del Raval in the Raval neighbourhood. The street is not quite as touristy and busy as it’s more illustrious sister, but more picturesque in my opinion. The palm trees and cafés line streets and fewer tourists makes it a much more relaxing walk and by far, I prefer to snack here.

This Ramblas is also the location of El Gato del Raval sculpture by Fernando Botero, so I think it’s worth combining the visit. Although I ow;don’t go out of the way to visit if you have a tight schedule.

Can't miss the huge bronze cat on Raval but you may miss the dog mess. The city is so clean but the dogs roam the city and I spotted very few live cats. Hmmm....

Rambla Del Raval is a superb boulevard we found on our resent 8 day holiday to Barcelona and what an amazing area.
Tree lined with bench seating all the way down,each side of the boulevard is lined with pubs,bars and restaurants and some really good architecture.
We went here a couple of times,we got are photos of the amazing huge cat took and visited a good few bars here,the Cerveceria 100 Montaditos was one of the finest places we went to here,a great bar .
This area of a night really comes to life,a buzzing,vibrant boulevard that attracts a diverse crowd and most definitely well worth seeking out.

Not to be overshadowed by the famous rambla, this one is quite small however, quite charming, there is a lovely statue of a cat to see, and enjoy the peacefulness whilst enjoying the plenty of seating, the area, is also not to be missed, with cheap eateries than the more touristy areas.

This has been a complete shock... Walking over from the boqueria Ramblas, the streets already changing into this mini pakistan neighbourhood. It is like you cross8ng 9ver into a different world. The tourists seem to disappear and the we arrived at ramblas del Raval. Police raids on one side of the street. Shady and dangerous, looking (Arab) people took notice of me and my wife, which made us decide to leave right upon arrival. We will never go back. It is simply unsafe. Barcelona deserves so much better than this. Please do something about this.

Raval has it's very own Rambla. I liked it so much more than La Rambla - the big touristy one - which is really only a street or two over. But such contrasting spaces! Raval Rambla made perfect sence to me as a wonderful and useful neighbourhood thoroughfare and meeting place. It wasn't a bit crowded on the couple of days I visited it and the street art is really fun, especially the monster cat! There are lots of nice, inexpensive places to eat along there and some very interesting looking hotels. Check it out - it's worth your time.

We went to this area looking for Marmalade, a very nice restaurant where we had a delicious brunch on a weekday. We were happy to eat at Marmalade, but on our way there we walked from the Plaça de la Universitat and the stroll became less enjoyable with each step. This area was not nice at all.

When we left after our wonderful meal, we decided to walk in another direction, in order to avoid walking the streets that we used before. So we went towards the Rambla de Raval on our way to Palau Guell. It seemed like a good idea, since it was a good route recommended by Waze; additionally, I found some information about the Rambla de Raval in a quick Google search and it sounded interesting.

I feel sorry to report that it was a very disgusting walk. Nothing I read prepared me for this. The streets are dirty, the smell everywhere is awful, people look shady and many of them even look filthy, the facades of the buildings are in disrepair, you feel unsafe and at risk even very early in the afternoon.

However, there are signs of hope. There is a lot of construction in the Rambla de Raval. They seem to be trying to repair the whole area. There are beautiful large trees, some of them with purple flowers, and there is the gorgeous Cat, a sculpture made by Colombian artist Fernando Botero, who does deserve a much better environment. The area has lots of potential.

The brightest side of our stroll was arriving to Palau Guell. It is an amazing building, full of interesting facts, incredibly beautiful features, and a wonderful history.

I do not feel tempted to ever return to this neighborhood, but I surely hope it will get better.
