Enjoyed a walk Down Las Ramblas and through the market. It's very busy at the front but a lot of the stalls repeat through out and it gets easier to walk through if you head towards the back. Also easier to get money out to purchase as not so crowded. Ate before we went. Should have waited and eaten at... More

I love Las Ramblas. True, it is habitually filled with pickpockets, most of the shops are very tourist-oriented and it is usually very crowded - but it is always fun. My husband and I were repeatedly drawn to the street because it contains Mercat de Sant Josep de la Boqueria - a truly fantastic food market. Las Ramblas also borders... More

Stopped in at Barcelona for a couple of nights before getting onto cruise ship, and was booked in to stay in Las Ramblas area. Got up early (6am) to go for a walk one morning and was surprised to see how many people still drinking etc on the streets. Was approached more than 10 times in 500m so decided to... More

Las Ramblas is certainly billed as a strip of Barcelona that shouldn't be missed, but it was just too commercial and touristy for me. Apart from the open stall market midway down the mall, it was just not my cup of tea. The waterfront area is lovely for a stroll and the statue of Colubus at the mouth of the... More

La Rambla is situated in the centre of the city, it bursts with life, street artists and lovely boutiques! Must visit it once or twice before you leave town.

Unless you have to visit here, eg to reach the opera or market, then this is one to avoid. Jammed with people, hot and busy with street stalls selling tat, plus traffic either side of the central Rambla area

Las Ramblas is a long long street and you'll certainly be getting your quota of exercise if you walk this one every day. It's also the place to go, to be seen and to see everyone else who wants to be seen. Traditionally, the good folk of Barcelona ramble in the late afternoon, to talk...most favorite pass time of an...

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.
