Crowded and touristy but fun

Very popular street in Barcelona, particularly with tourists. Walk around to soak in the atmosphere, but avoid eating here - mostly overpriced, average fare.

You can get to pretty much anywhere from Las Rambles, there's plenty going on, lots of stalls and plenty of restaurants and bars surrounding it. Very busy, but that's to be expected. Worth a visit.

We enjoyed taking a walk down Las Ramblas enjoying seeing the human statues and street entertainers. There are lots of restraunts and bars that you can sit outside and enjoy watching the world go by.

If you don't like crowds, this area is not for you. Lots of places to shop, eat, drink. There are some places to sit but not a lot. Carrefour 2 story is at the end of the Ramblas for those who want to go grocery shopping. They have lots of fresh fish, meats, cheeses... inexpensive prices.

Huge crowds of people circulate on the Ramblas with all kinds of dress/undress. Great to find a good place to sit and have a beer and enjoy the sights. Prices on the Ramblas are high but need to find a nice locale and enjoying the view. Just watch for the beggars and pickpockets.

Las Ramblas is wide tree lined walkway stretching from Plaza Catalunya all the way down to the Christopher Columbus column near the sea. It was pleasant enough but nothing outstanding and most useful just to get your bearings. There's lots of talk about pickpockets on Las Ramblas - don't let that put you off - we saw no evidence of...

Seems like the tourists headquarters for shopping & eating. Nice to walk around & buy souvenirs. Make sure to walk down some of the side streets too. You can find great street performers & cool shops. A little crowded so be careful for pickpockets ( we didn't experience any problems), but were advised several times by shop owners to be... More

Depending on the time of year it seems to be one of the busiest parts of the city. Has great sights, bars and places to buy souvenirs. The Market is a must when visiting Las Ramblas, even if it's just to see the colors and beautiful sights with in. Pick pocketing is very common so you have to be extra... 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.
