Beautiful boulevard

Magnificent pedestrian ave full of life. We did not encounter any of the pick pockets which we were warned of. One of numerous boulevards that come to life in the evening. This... read more

A walk through this main street of Barcelona is really enjoyable. Tapaz restaurants gave me the much required energy and spirit to walk through. Walking from one of Las Ramblas upto Park Guel was amazing. With a number of Tapaz dishes, Anchovy served in olive oil was the best and local beer, it was tiring, yet refreshing...you can buy different... More

Very busy area with street artists, stalls and restaurants. A simply great atmosphere. Highly recommend a visit, if you follow it down to the end it leads into the hub of the City one way and the Port the other so no worries getting lost. There are also lots of excellent pubs/bars and restaurants down some of the side alleys... More

Magnificent pedestrian ave full of life. We did not encounter any of the pick pockets which we were warned of. One of numerous boulevards that come to life in the evening. This street connects the waterfront with the city center. There are many entrances to the city subways from this location There is even a Duncan Donut shop!

We were in a hostel very close to Las Ramblas. So we spend quite a lot of time travelling over it when we went pretty much anywhere. The street is very busy, it is filled with vendors and people trying to sell you selfie-sticks. It gets worse during the night, but the people try to sell very different merchandise. Overall...

Las Ramblas is heart of the city Barcelona. On the other hand too much touristic and lot of touristic traps. Expensive food and drinks and need also be careful late evening or early nights especial in the down part of Ramblas near Columbus statue. Lot of present shops and other entertainment in form of living statues and musicians. Always lot... More

Dreadful spot, I thought I was in the middle east, to many kebab shops and stalls. Needs an upgrade and needs it now. One place I will never return to

Busy, lots of hawkers, keep an eye on your bags and wallet. We also had dodgy street sellers offering us more than tins of beer, avoid these as clearly they are dodgy. Lots of street restuarants, you wont fail to find anywhere to eat or drink here but I recommend going off into the side streets if you feel adventurous,... More

This street is busy during the day but comes alive at night with locals and tourists shopping ,eating at the many restaurants, or just sitting talking and watching all the activity that goes on. The area is well patroled by law enforcement and nowhere does it feel unsafe to wonder around. Even the small backstreets are well lit and busy

Definitely fun to walk along and explore, but the quality of the food is wanting due to its touristy nature

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.
