    Great stroll from Plaça Catalunya down to the ocean. A must stop on the way is La Boqueria. Just be mindful of pick pocketers, but other than that, it's a beautiful way to spend a few hours.

    Be sure to head to the Canaletes Fountain, located at the top of Las Ramblas! Legend holds that those who drink from it will ALWAYS return to Barcelona!

    Try the market for delicious food- much cheaper than the restaurants at les rambles. if really on a budget, pick up your own tapas ingredients at the carrefour supermarket at the top of the street.

    Stop by the la boqueria market👌🏼 la rambla is full of hidden treasures, so walk slowly and take everything in. Keep an eye on your belongings, though – pickpockets operate here!

    Don't take a taxi to Las Ramblas - exit at Monument to Columbus and walk... nicer and not so crowded areas in the North of Las Ramblas (de Catalunya) and Passeig de Gracia... also nice stores!

    Popular tourist street but watch out for pickpockets. You can find flowers, birds, jewellery and cheap souvenirs here at the stalls. Some really nice, like the small magnets with real mini plants on.

    Walk along this busy street and experience the Barcelona’s dashing culture. Made lively by the artists, performers, dancers, and cafés, this is a great place to hang out in the afternoon.

    It's the 23rd of April, so it's Sant Jordi Day! That's why Las Ramblas today are full of girls buying books for their boyfriends and the guys buying roses for their ladies!

    Pedestrian street, geared somewhat to tourists and natives too, there are lots of souvenir shops along it, a flower market, the street performers and the amazing food market la Boqueria, where to eat

    Beautiful street for walking, but overrun with tourists and shoppers. Be wary of pick pocketers and solicitors. Good place to gift shop for trinkets to bring back to family and friends at home.

    Really beautiful for a long walk, lots of food options, shopping options, and so many sights just steps off the main road. Head there and branch out!

    Lots of great food and shopping here. Keep an eye out for the unofficial vendors who sell stuff from their blanket. They are constantly on the move and are willing to make deals on their merchandise.

    Long side walk full of tourists and pickpockets. Worth to visit only because of the market La Boqueria. Fresh fruits stalls and good tapas bars are inside the market.

    Love the living statues! If you go there @saturday, don't go in hurry. Walk in the same paste as the others, you don't have any other choise! Its SO slow!
  • Classic Sailing Barcelona
    Despite the crowds, still a must-do for visitors. But if you stop for a beer, make sure you ask the price first - some places will sting you 15 Euros for a beer!

    The street starts from Placa de Catalunya and ends at Monument a Colom. It is nearly 1.2 km long at the heart of the city.

    Nice, all brands and foods are here. Heart of Barcelona. If you are looking for souvenir, go for Cemusa but quite expensive.

    A tourist thoroughfare in the day, a hooker and drug dealer thoroughfare at night! Frankly, not special, but is a good place to start when you begin exploring Barcelona.

    You can always find cheaper Paella's and sangria down to the port direction, so do not stop and rest in the first place you see. Try keep walking when beautiful street artist shows entertaining you.

    If you are staying here , don't buy any food or drinks from the supermarkets at the street , go to Carfour (their prices are super economical). Also they have a noddles & sushi booths

    Nice place but watch your pockets. Also be careful late in the evening there are lots of ladies on corners trying to grab your attention to relieve you in more ways than one.

    Honestly this street has lost its luster. Extremely touristy. Residents getting pushed out to make way for hotels and restaurants, rampant overcharging, and pickpocketing. One walk down it is enough.

    Take the chance and give little presents to your loved ones on the day of Sant Jordi, the Catalonian version of Valentine's day. Women receive a single rose and men a book.
