It was great walking through this avenue but I don't think it is something special that you must see...

This street roughly extends from Port Vell district of Barcelona down to the magnificent Plaça De Espanya ,it encompasses many great landmark sites to be found in this city,the architecture along the street is a mix of architectural styles and all along the street there are innumerable pubs,bars and restaurants both local and ones aimed at the tourist market.
A great street,well worth walking down .

Its hard to call this an attraction, but it is a major road worth knowing about. It is a busy city street extending from Plaça de Drassanes near the Port to Plaça de Espanya. The full length can be briskly walked in half an hour. There are sidewalk cafes and bars in spots along the way, along with shops, gas/petrol stations, and the like.

One of the main boulevards of the town,cutting the town from east to west.One of its ends is in Placa Espanya,a landmark of Barcelona and the other is in Placa de les Drassanes,close to Port Vell.

A Metropolitan must have big boulevards, and Barcelona have many.
Avenue del Parallel is one of them.
It is a big boulevard, which connect Plaza de Espana and Placa de les Drassanes (at the harbour, close to the Rambla).
It is a green boulevard, and there are some art, shops and restaurants.
But it is difficult to call it a big attraction, compared with all the attractions in Barcelona.

A very long Avenue but has some very good restaurants along the way. Our Hotel was on the Avenue and plenty of metro stops along the route.

We recently stay a few days in the HCC Lugano hotel (excellent) which is located on this busy Avenida. Needless to say we had to walk up and down it a few times, mainly to the Metro stations at either Placa Espana or Poble Sec. One thing we noticed was the strong wind that often blows uninterrupted up the wide street from the harbour area. Like all of Barcelona we were impressed by how clean the street is kept with very little graffiti and hardly any rubbish.

Keep looking around because there is plenty to see and enjoy.Pay attention to low class pickpockets who do not even hide their intention.

The Avenida del Paralelo is a very long street and is quite interesting. You can walk from the Plaza de España all the way to the port on this street and see many interesting things.
