There are so many areas of Barcelona that are classier. I didn't think Las Ramblas was worth the walk. Passeig de Gracia is so much nicer and has better higher end shopping. El Born was the best place to shop for boutiques.

Great pulse of the city here. But be careful of professional pick pockets. Would be wise to wear a money belt under your clothes. I personally know a few people that got phones and wallets taken. Amazing place to walk, shop and eat. Enjoy!

There is actually no real reason why you should come to this street, but you might cross it a couple of times, while discovering its tiny side streets with a never ending variety of shops, bars and places of business. Beware of pick pocketing. And don't give money to the beggars here: they are organized.

This is an area that's worth seeing while in Barcelona. Plenty of shops and restaurants and some of the culture of the area and country. It's a nice walk and good window shopping.

This street is worth walking along, but it isn't exactly authentic Barcelona and when it is, it's marred by toursts. Lots of junky tourist shops, junky tourist kiosks, and bad tourist restaurants (people wave you in at the door with menus). There are 'real' shops here too (like the Market) but its hard to sort out the real places from... More

Las Ramblas La Rambla is a street in central Barcelona, popular with tourists and locals alike. A tree-lined pedestrian mall, it stretches for 1.2 kilometres connecting Plaça de Catalunya in the centre with the Christopher Columbus Monument at Port Vell. The market the Boqueria must visit and a glimpse of Marilyn Monroe museum of erotic art.

Evene though this is a bit touristy, it is still worth the walk. One can deviate at any time into the back alleys to find shops and restaurants. And if one chooses to walk the entirety, thats fine too because you would end up at Park Gruel or the waterfront.

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.
