We lived in an AirB&B very close to Las Ramblas so we walked there for 6 days. It's not wheelchair friendly in the middle of the wide street because that portion of the street is wavy (to represent the architect Gaudi's love for the sea I'm assuming). However on both sides of the street there are flat sidewalks for wheelchairs,... More

Myself and my family visited Barcelona a couple years ago following a visit to Salou. Before travelling we read some reviews warning of pic pocketing on Las Ramblas and while waling along Las Ramblas on our first day we witnessed an attempt on a tourists handbag getting robbed. If it wasn't for a nearby bystander calling out she wouldn't have... More

Last Ramblas on first visit seemed very busy, but the only stalls we saw seemed to sell nothing but flowers and garden equipment. It was still very lively at all times of the day and night however. We saw very little of entertainment bar a couple of street performers so was a bit let down by the reputation it came... More

After hearing a lot about Las rambles. We decided to visit it during the day. It's a very busy street with lots of tourist shops and some nice buildings. I didn't enjoy ir personally as there's a lot more better places to explore like gothic quarter and elborn.

I love going here but just a couple streets over either way is much more quiet. Definitely great people watching though. Love the boqueria market. Sit at a street cafe patio & have a sangria and some tapas to experience it.

We used La Rambas to go to the centre markets & on the first day to get to the port & have a look. We soon realised that its just a main street full of tourists, cheap souvenirs, blanket sellers & pick pockets. There are nicer & more authentic streets running parallel with some lovely cafes. Its gets very crowded,... More

Okay, if you're visiting Barcelona for the first time you should stroll down the Rambla at least once to see this tourist infested pedestrian mayhem. Keep in mind that 80% of the people walking the Rambla are tourists. The other 20% are beggars, pick-pockets and hustlers. The food along the Rambla is poor and over priced. There are a few... More

Cant really visit Barcelona without taking a walk along Las Ramblas taking you from the heart of Barcelona's shopping area to the seafront, there's something for everyone along the walk and although some typical tourist tac there was plenty more too, had the warnings regarding pickpockets before our trip and thankfully had no issues nor did we see any others...

If you don't like crowds, don't come here. Very busy area, wall to wall people in the middle and late day. Lots of shops and markets selling every kind of food you could imagine. Lot's of energy and great people watching.

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.
