You have to go see Las Ramblas but don't plan to eat or drink there. All local flavour has long since departed and even local taxi driver said not to bother and bemoaned that (to paraphrase) "pakistanis had taken it over and their mafia ruled the area and no spanish went there, only pickpockets". No doubt an over-exaggeration, so enjoy... More

Just your regular tourist street that has overpriced souvenirs and food nearby. It does stretch down all the way to the ocean so it's worth taking a stroll down it just to see what it's about.

Las Ramblas is very lively, be it early morning or late at night. Very touristy so souvenirs are expensive. Access to lots of brand stores, entrance to the Mercato and Carrefour supermarket. Many restaurants and hotels along this street (Stayed at Hotel Arc La Rambla) and easy access to port and subway

The street starts right by the sea front and if you are feeling fit can follow the road as it makes its way past many hotels, restaurants, gift shops, bars,fast food outlets and cloths shops. Half way up is the main plaza where the tourist open top bus rides start from. Past this and further up the shops and bars... More

Las Ramblas is a stretch of an avenue with some shopping, outdoor cafes and a few street performers. No interesting or unique shops, food you can find everywhere else in town, and a few street performers who where okay but not exceptional. I think Barcelona has much more to offer in nightlife and attractions so you can miss this one.

We made our way down Las Ramblas early in the morning. It was a great walk all the way to the Columbus Monument. You shoulda pend the 6 euro to ride to the top of the monument !! What a great 360 degree view of Barcelona!

Las ramblas is many the most typical place in Barcelona that people knows. The street stretches all the way down to the marina but do not spend to much time here doe there are so many others streets and places that needs to been seen.

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.
