There are lot fo things to do in la rambla. There like hundreds of shops, caffees, restaurants.. I think that the best thing is to walk it from the top -placa de catalunya down, and then you get to the aquarium and big mall :) be careful about the mercado de la boqueria.- its closed on the sundays and i...

We stayed at the Hotel Arc right on Las Ramblas clean and bustling place to be. I would recommend it for a stroll but not for eating too touristy

We had a lovely walk down Las Ramblas. We were a bit apprehensive as we had heard so many horror stories about pick pockets. We needn't have worried. There are plenty of Policia patrolling and we found them helpful for directions. To visit on a Sunday in January is probably not the best time to get the atmosphere as it... More

We enjoyed the day of site seeing and stopped off in this area for the open markets. Dozens of stalls seeing everything from jewelery to leather goods. Also took a break for a coffee at one of the MANY cafes in the area. Just across from the Columbus Monument.....I would definately recommend checking it out.

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

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.
