enjoyed Las Ramblas a couple of times as a great spot to walk and enjoy life....halfway down go into the fresh food market and enjoy seafood at its best and soak up the atmosphere with all kinds of food and drink...like the borough but better...More
This is the one (more) thing that is a must do on a trip to Barcelona. Walk, people watch, eat, drink, check out the architecture, etc. My first visit was on a Sunday and I was lucky to find neighborhood band practice in some if...More
Very busy and costly. Lots of sellers hassling and waiters wanting you to eat at their venue. We had no offers of drugs or women to buy and no pick pockets but others did. There is lots of police presence. Lots of begging and people...More
Full of tat stalls & tourist junk but also pretty florists. The shops and restaurants that line the street tend to be overpriced. A few streets back either side are much, much better. Very crowded all the time. Beware of pickpockets.
It looked like Istiklal street in Istanbul, minimum local population and taste of it. Full of Chinese cheap staff. Over popular, nasty touristy foods etc. We prefer to hang around the places, and eat and enjoy the places that locals do. That is not a...More
Certainly worth going down but you will spend most of the time people dodging. In the evening it was always famous for the families that woul parade up and down now it is more seedy with some very strange and threatening characters about. A real...More
As frequent visitors to Barcelona we always have a walk around here. Good atmosphere, places to eat for various budgets. Weekends are manic though, so if you have the chance to go on a week day instead during your stay it should be a little...More
Stroll down the heart of the city and enjoy many places to eat and drink while people watching. Lots and lots of shops to explore to satisfy every taste. Can be very crowded and be very mindful of pick pockets as they are plentiful.
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.
I agree with Beachboy and Tars64 about what to wear .Can I add on another subject - transport! NEVER flag down a taxi on the Ramblas or at either end of it. There are far too many taxis in Barcelona and some of the drivers... More
I agree with Beachboy and Tars64 about what to wear .Can I add on another subject - transport! NEVER flag down a taxi on the Ramblas or at either end of it. There are far too many taxis in Barcelona and some of the drivers take advantage of unsuspecting tourists by routeing down one side and up the other then on to destination, with much queuing in the perpetual vehicle crush. He ignored my plea that we keep away from the Ramblas so our 10 minute trip took 35 minutes and cost 40euros by the time he extricated his car from the Ramblas queuing.
