A long pedestrian walk way full of little stalls, eateries and street entertainers that stretches from the port to the plaza catalunya. Great food market half way along. Lovely square (plaza reill) that is so pretty and full of restaurants. A must see and do.

Very commercial, super busy, any character has sadly been lost, best to adventure down the side streets, farther away the better..... expensive as well+ watch your bags and wallets

Walking Las Ramblas was the least interesting thing we did on our week long Barcelona adventure. It is super crowded, and there is no great shopping to speak of. The food market was interesting. Better to stray off Las Ramblas and see the many fine old squares and placas (plazas) adjacent to Las Ramblas.

Drunken stag nights with pick pockets. Go off track and enjoy real Catalonia. It really is terrible.

Las rambles is the heart of tourist Barcelona very busy and expensive with the market off the main street well worth a visit but better off going off the main drag for food coffee and gifts which cost much less.

It was very interesting with lots of fantastic shops. The market was packed with people and the displays of produce was vast. Very nice but too crowded for me.

There are so many people that it's hard to walk and enjoy the shops and view. There are lots of pickpockets who try to rob you. We didn't get robbed but we had a few attempts e.g a man, dressed as tourist, walked up to us and asked if we can speak English (in Spanish), we ignored him and he... More

If you enjoy walking, Las Ramblas is the perfect place; plenty tourist attractions down the line, at the same time you do your walking workout. Great place to visit!

Very busy. Don't get caught out with the restaurants along the Las Ramblas [in the middle]. Make sure you check the prices on the food menu and ALSO the drinks menu [this is where they can charge a lot at the end when you go to pay].

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.
