Lots to see and do whilst walking the full length of this street. Look out for the indoor market which is halfway down on your right. It is well worth walking round to see the stalls and what they sell. Also a few tapas bars in here which seemed popular with locals. Bars and restaurants down here are not cheap... More

Good in the morning and throughout the day. Lots of squares to eat and drink with hundreds of side streets with small-medium businesses. Lots of homeless people, often approach whilst in shops for change. Can be an uncomfortable atmosphere after day light fades. Lots of pick pockets (as young as 15) witnessed attempting theft. Avoid the street merchants who sell... More

I'm really not sure why this street gets so much kudos. We walked most of it and it was like many other major high streets with shops and restaurants.

Do not bother walking there. Take the small little streets on the side. It's actually safer! Nothing to see on this street unless you need to go to the Liceu for an opera.

Nice area of Barcelona. Plenty to see. As soon as we found the Ramblas we were always able to orient ourselves and found Barcelona a very easy city to walk in. We were there at the end of March and there were no crowds, and the temperature was perfect. I am sure it gets crazy busy and hot in the... More

Las Ramblas used to be a stream bed, but when filled in it has become a pedestrian paradise. The police presence is discreet but the vendor presence is significant. All the way down to the Med and the Statue of Christopher Columbus and back to Canaletes Fountain is only 1.2 kilometers but you'll see interesting diversions at every step.

This is a lovely road with lots of stalls and shops lining the road. There is also a market about half way with a fresh fish section and a variety of other items. We were there on St. Jorges day and the road was packed but everyone was in a plesant mood.

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.
