The old city meets the modern in Las Ramblas, a series of pedestrian streets lined by outdoor markets, shops, cafes, and restaurants. To stroll through this bustling district is to walk through the history and culture of one of the world’s most exciting urban centers. Celebrated poet Federico García Lorca once described it as "the only street in the world which I wish would never end." Famous for its throbbing urban energy, this colorful avenue and tree-lined walkway are one of the busiest areas in the city, so it’s not surprising that it’s constantly thronged by tourists. To avoid crowds, head down some of the smaller side streets, where you can find inexpensive souvenirs, friendly locals, and live music. Plan your visit to Las Ramblas and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Barcelona vacation planner.

  • Maybe it is me but I found this a busy pedestrian street like one finds in any other large city. Barcelona evidently marketed theirs better😉

  • It was a nice stroll but really nothing special. More of a generic shopping street. Perhaps it was more vibrant in the old days.

  • Stopped off for a beer at Seventy Bar. great location to people watch, Yes bars more expensive than surrounding areas. Worth a visit just to see the tourists pass by and take in the atmosphere. The Mercado De La Boqueria (local market, used by locals) is definitely worth a visit, fresh fruit. vegetables meat fish etc. a popular wee cafe to get some food.
  • This street and market were fabulous. I wish we had something like this at home. Fresh market, great cafes to eat in and wonderful people watching
