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.

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.

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.
Don’t choose a hotel on the side streets especially if you intend on walking alone as females to the hotel. Women used to get robbed of their passports as men appeared from both ends of the alleyways and there was no where... More
Don’t choose a hotel on the side streets especially if you intend on walking alone as females to the hotel. Women used to get robbed of their passports as men appeared from both ends of the alleyways and there was no where for them to run too. Many of them are unlit or not well lit. Maybe it’s changed since I last visited.
