Las Ramblas is everything you can expect. Packed with tourists, souvenir sellers, gamblers, scammers from all over, etc. A lot to look at. In the night time the bad girls will arrive. Be very careful with your belongings. A friend of mine lost a necklace while talking to a group of them

This is the most visited street in Barcelona, so of course it's virtually obligatory to visit once. Once will do. It does have a certain 'vibe', but so does all of Barcelona, so there's no reason to visit las Ramblas for that reason. For the rest of it, it's a long street filled with restaurants, shops, the occasional mime and... More

We walked from the top of the Ramblas all the way down to the water line. We stopped and shopped at all the little vendors - who were all very friendly! I felt very safe. We walked one time at night and the lights were beautiful. The next time we walked during the day and it was like a different... More

Wasn't overly impressed. Has a lot of kiosk newsagent type stands and a number of restaurants with hosts outside trying to entice you in. Lots of 'looky looky' guys about selling fake Barcelona shirts. The pickpockets are not something I could comment on as I didn't see any or feel that it was an issue.

A great street, food, shopping, entertainment, street artists who were very good. Nice people busy all hours of the day. A very strong but unintrusive police presence which made you feel safe.

This for me is the heart of Barcelona, a great atmosphere by day and night. Stay in a hotel in this area for close access to la boquería market the gothic quarter as it will save your feet and transport costs getting to it. The ramblas are full off stalls to buy souvenirs, artists who paint exquisite portraits as well... More

Las Ramblas is a famous boulevard in Barcelona which connects center city with the Columbus monument on the coast. While the main street holds most of the tourist attractions, taking side streets will expand your adventure greatly. There are many guides on the Internet available that will guide you through this section so you do not miss key points of... More

I'm sure Las Ramblas is spectacular, but it was wall to wall people making it difficult to see anything. Did not enjoy.

Was told this was a must see but could have done without, nothing out of the ordinary really, just a lot of stalls and watch your handbags here. Pickpockets everywhere in the rambles sad to say, the police should crack down on these people, it puts off the tourists thats for sure..

You have to do it when in Barcelona but that says it all. Unless a couple mime performers very commercial . Restaurants not cheap and quality not there. Go in the side streets of Las Ramblas and discover many more

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.
