Las ramblas is certainly a visit when your in Barcelona, lots of stalls, shops, restaurants and atmosphere, good to see at Christmas due to the fantastic lights on show, beware of pickpockets as Barcelona is a bit of a haven for them.

Every time we went near this street the crowds were all over the place. You have to be very wary of pickpockets and it seems that all is tourist driven. Very tacky.

Great restaurant options and good shopping in Las Ramblas location. Gets quite busy but no problem getting seating in restaurants. There was always police in the area to make you feel that much more safe. Shopping options all around.

In Castilian and Catalan, rambla means "dry river bed". This is a large, pedestrian-type street typical of Spain that links the Plaza de Catalunya to the Old Port in the Old Town. Great to stroll, stop to watch who passes, drink a refreshment in a kiosk or observe the street performers. Be very careful with the pickpockets.

There are so many areas of Barcelona that are classier. I didn't think Las Ramblas was worth the walk. Passeig de Gracia is so much nicer and has better higher end shopping. El Born was the best place to shop for boutiques.

Great pulse of the city here. But be careful of professional pick pockets. Would be wise to wear a money belt under your clothes. I personally know a few people that got phones and wallets taken. Amazing place to walk, shop and eat. Enjoy!

There is actually no real reason why you should come to this street, but you might cross it a couple of times, while discovering its tiny side streets with a never ending variety of shops, bars and places of business. Beware of pick pocketing. And don't give money to the beggars here: they are organized.

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.
