It's an amazing place full of little bars, coffee shops and restaurants, it's perfect to walk around without care or objective. There are several buildings where you can sneak to the terrace and enjoy the view. Fantastic.

under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War
with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and
authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be
thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas

The narrow streets are a dead give away. The main Catholic Cathedral is in the middle of it all and the border is indeed Las Ramblas.
