Another landmark in Barcelona. Very crowded as expected but worth the walk. Many places for ice cream which was perfect for a hot day

A very busy street that has people walking and shopping at the many vendors along the way. You can cross left or right and turn down the pretty side streets. You can feel the energy of the city as you watch the throngs of people walking by.

Our friends , my husband and me are from the USA. We moved to a hotel just 1 block off the Main Street. We moved this area for all the people, crowded as it was all the time , was a lot of fun. We enjoyed people watching. Everyone was extremely nice and just didn't appear to be in any... More

Don't spend money here. Go further and find the better places to east and drink. Too many hawkers and restaurants with so-so food.

You can't NOT go to the Rambla when you visit Barcelona. But like any tourist trap, it has basically lost all authenticity. Great for cheap souvenirs and heavily pushed, overpriced Italian food on the pavement. It's lively and exciting and just as tacky as Oxford Street in London. I'm sure the locals avoid it like the plague.

Basically a bustling street of around 1 km with restaurants, shops and street entertainment. The market was worth a visit but look around as it can be cheaper a little further into the market. Look out for also the little side streets off Las Ramblas as there are many nice restaurants there for you to see. We enjoyed it as... More

This will appeal to you if you like watching people and strolling through crowds of them, shapes, sizes and colours. And stopping off every so often for a coffee, perhaps with a crème catalane. Many and varied and excitements As you stroll down las Ramblas. Divert off to the main covered market for a further feast of people and colours....... 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.
