We used La Rambas to go to the centre markets & on the first day to get to the port & have a look. We soon realised that its just a main street full of tourists, cheap souvenirs, blanket sellers & pick pockets. There are...More

Okay, if you're visiting Barcelona for the first time you should stroll down the Rambla at least once to see this tourist infested pedestrian mayhem. Keep in mind that 80% of the people walking the Rambla are tourists. The other 20% are beggars, pick-pockets and...More

If you don't like crowds, don't come here. Very busy area, wall to wall people in the middle and late day. Lots of shops and markets selling every kind of food you could imagine. Lot's of energy and great people watching.

It is crowded, but when in Barcelona - you have to pass through once. When that is done, walk back from the harbor and take right into the Gothic quarters. Better shops, pub, restaurants and so much more interesting all together.

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...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...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.

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

Till last night everything was normal. I did not notice anything. La Rambla was as usual festive. Near the Colomb end of la Rambla a concert was going on with people dancing. Diagonal was normal as well.
