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.

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.

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

I currently in Barcelona February 1 and it’s Quite chilly especially in the evening s. So March weather is about the same. There are a lot of bars you may want to explore to your liking.

Hi, the walk from the port to la rambla is a very easy flat walk. Just beyond la rambla is the gothic quarter, which is also worth a stroll through.
