Nothing in any review can justify the experience in person. You can walk all the way from Catalonia square to the sea on this wonderful walkway and stop bye at the most wonderful attractions like the biggest fresh food market on earth to the most weird attractions like the erotic museum and wax museum (cant recommend as we didn't visit....

Lots of trashy, touristy stalls, the old town is better with lots of interesting cafe's and bars. However there are lots of tales of people getting robbed and mugged. We were there in the day and were fine but a friend was mugged the same week.

The long street i filled with turists, overpriced cafees and people trying to sell you lots of useless things. Just like many other places in the world, but if you explore the small side streets and the big marked it is quite nice. Great tapas at rair prices and alot less turists around. The old town in barcalona is a... More

It's crowded and filled with touristy shops but My entire family enjoyed the stroll down The famed Ramblas. It's great people watching and you'll find plenty of gelato stops along the way. The heart of Barcelona's Middle Ages back-streets, filled with good shopping and eats, are only blocks away.

I don't know why people rate Las Ramblas, although I am doing so. For that matter, I don't know why people even go to Las Ramblas, although I did so, many times. Las Ramblas is Barcelona's Tourist Central if measured by feet sapien per square meter. It is busy with tourists, hawkers, little and medium sized structures selling a vast... More

Really loved this street, it's great to sit down, eat and people watch, lots of food, flowers and trinkets for sale. It is an experience to watch the 'blanket sellers' trying to avoid the police. We ended up eating in the area most nights because it was fun

Did the walk in 31 degrees of heat but gave us the opportunity to visit several of the many bars en route. Some great little shops and superb and cheap flower stalls. Very pleasant afternoon

My third time of visiting Barcelona agree with other travellers review, this street is full of very poor cheap tourist tat. The bars are way way over priced and rude. I now go straight to the gothic quarter shopping and food and drink much cheaper , more Spanish and a quarter of the price also people more friendly go and... 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.
