The ramblas area is too crowded and stressful for my taste. We stay close to the ramblas and the area is noisy and crowded. You also need to be always aware of your surroundings to avoid pickpockets. So we tried to avoid it as much...More

Must see! If you like to walk and people watch, then this is where you should do it. Lots of shops. Cafes, and flower shops with interesting shaped flowers...once you see them, you will know what I mean.

This is such a happening place in Barcelona. La Rambla has several coffee shops all around and one can chill out for hours till midnight. There are many shops and one can find the heart’s content to shop till you drop moment.

La Ramblas should only be used as a walk way, all your shopping should be done on the side streets. Too many hustlers on La Ramblas.

Busy as all get out, but totally worth wandering down. It is pretty magical to stroll along las Ramblas and the crowds of people tend to flow pretty easily when you are wandering. A lot of travel sites tell you to guard your money carefully,...More

Las Ramblas - overrated and a rip-off. Las Ramblas offers very little and appears to be largely ignored by locals. Anything you can buy at Las Ramblas you can get a few blocks away at half the price.

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

The metro(subway) stop is actually in Plaza Catalunya, from where the La Rambla begins. You have two options, using the Green Line, L3 or the Red Line, L1.
