Las Ramblas, Barcelona

(24,000+ reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
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. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Las Ramblas by using our Barcelona vacation planner.

  • Good place to figure out where you are in the city but otherwise quite underwhelming and very overcrowded. There is much better shopping elsewhere in the city.  more »

  • Busy Place - I had fun walking along this street. You can see lots of stuff happening. If you don't like too much people, then this isn't a place for you. Food stalls, souvenir shops, and all others, you can find them all here. If you walk straight all the way through, you will get to the Columbus Monument.
  • the service was wonderful, the drinks were well prepared and presented to us perfectly! I would recommend everyone to visit Las Ramblas if they are in Barcelona. I will be visiting again in the future
  • The most iconic street in Barcelona. Full of restaurants, market stalls and street artists. Beware of pickpocketing.
  • We stayed at the Travelodge very basic but clean and friendly, great night life in the area. Good restaurants and shops plus a short walk to the beach, easy access to the metro.
  • The are around Las Ramblas was amazing. There were multiple open air markets nearby and a large amount of places to eat. Be careful about pickpockets though and always keep your wallet/purse close or in front of you. Multiple people get pickpocketed/robbed daily if they have a slight lapse in judgement for where they hold their belongings. Room and service can not vouch too much about though only area around.
