Super Busy Street

Las Ramblas is super busy with tons of shops and restaurants. Late at night it's a whole different vibe than in the day. I wouldn't recommend going at night alone. There's plenty... read more

It's just a street with souvenir vendors, tourist pubs and restaurants. Nothing culturally significant or exciting about it. It's worth a visit just to take a look but I wouldn't spend much time there. Although the Museum Erotica is there.. that's worth a punt.

Still a nice place, but it was very cold yesterday. I advice visitors to keep this visit to the summer. For the Muslims, I found a turkish resturant there serving Halal food. It is on the main street, yet, not on google maps.

A wide, central promenade with many stalls, and an infinite amount of people-watching opportunities, from the flower stall owners to the nervous, illegal vendors who disappear in the blink of an eye (theirs are the wares on the parachute/sheet arrangement😉). Off Las Ramblas are the Gothic Quarter, and the fresh produce markets La Boqueria Market / Mercat de Sant Josep... More

Depending on what time you're walking at Las Ramblas, you might get the sensation you're just about to be robbed. While pickpocketing is a real thing (keep your wallet and phone protected), you probably won't have much problem there besides paying overpriced values for sangria or tapas. So I don't recommend to go there to eat, only to observe. If... More

Ok, so I'm sure you've read all about this place...but it doesn't have to be that way when you go. There aren't hookers everywhere and pick pockets. They exist so be mindful, but just enjoy the area and the nightlife. Can be a lot of fun with friends and adults especially

Las Ramblas is super busy with tons of shops and restaurants. Late at night it's a whole different vibe than in the day. I wouldn't recommend going at night alone. There's plenty to see, but probably skip the restaurants right on the street and venture off into one of the side streets for some better food and better prices. It's... More

Wear sensible shoes when venturing onto La Rambla as you will walk up, down, and into the sidestreets for hours! There is so much to see and picking the right tapas or restaurant will be hard as there are so many. Take a walk through the old town and up to the Port where Columbus will great you from his...

"How does one...?" Perhaps with words and abbreviations, but not sentences? Okay, some of both. La Boqueria market - amazing. Beggars - real / fake (?) - unsettling. Thieves - many urban police. Souvenirs - souvenirs, souvenirs, yawn, souvenirs... Bars - restaurants - snacks - McD - BK - KFC - supermarkets - cakes - coffee... Shops - clothes -... More

Small stores , lots of good restaurants and a very Spanish atmosphere . It's also a good vantage point to view some of Barcelona's finest architecture.

Staying in La Rambla

Neighbourhood Profile
La Rambla
Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry riverbed. Now, La Rambla is a 1200-metre 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 appetising 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.
