Sounds odd but Las Ramblas is one of the most amazing places to wander. However, the part from Plaza Catalunya towards the waterfront is pure tourist trap. Stroll, take it in, enjoy, DO NOT BUY. You will pay 2 to 3 times anywhere else. The...More

It's a lovely walk and some nice Christmas lights but overall a tourist trap with lots of souvenir shops mediocre food for sale. If you're going to eat go into a side alley for sure.

The Gothic area of Barcelona is the city's soul. However, Las Ramblas does not reflect the Gothic area. It is a really tacky, cheap, crowded tourist ghetto. With all the beauty in Barcelona, avoid Las Ramblas.

I was rather disappointed when I saw this street, as it definitely did not live up to its reputation of "the Champs Elysees of Barcelona". The wide and long street is filled with shops and kiosks, and if you are lucky (we were not), you...More

A must do in Barcelona. Fascinating street theatre on all sides. In spite of constant pick pocket warnings, we felt very safe there day and night. It felt like a better choice than some of the alleys after 11:00pm.

Very busy, entertaining with a load of street Artists ready to sketch you. Las Ramblas is for continuos roads with lots of side streets to explore. La Bouqeria food market is to be found here, nice place to have a seafood lunch.

Love this area, full of stalls and cafes and street entertainment. Beware of the pickpockets and the bar prices in this area but a must see.

A very popular spot with tourists as well as locals. Lots of stands selling gelato, cheap souvenirs, hot churros, paella, huge glasses of sangria and mojitos, etc. Fun place to venture down at least once during your visit. The trees that fold together above it...More

Wandered through Las Ramblas during our 2 day visit to Barcelona. It has unusual shops and alleyways to wander through. Has a real nice feel about the area. It wasn't overly busy for the week before Christmas, but it was lightly raining so perhaps the...More

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

Hi I'd recommend the Gothic Quarter as it's right by Las Ramblas and much cheaper, lots of bars, tapas and restaurants and a great atmosphere, my favourite bar was Orviso. I found most restaurants and bars over priced on Las... More
