Don’t get what the hype is about, full of lookie lookie men (Street sellers) giving it the big un with poor merchandise. Only good thing is the market which you can enter from this street.

Potentially an ideal place for a stroll, but it's so packed with tourists and people selling tat that - yawn - avoid it. Better visited at 3am.

We walked up Las Ramblas on a Sunday morning, enjoyed a coffee, went to the market outside the cathedral. The market was bustling, a great place to have a coffee & pick up some lunch.

The main drag in Barcelona and tourist hot spot, full of shops, stalls and possibly pick pockets. Top tip...wear your back pack on your front. Noticed quite a heavy police presence so that was reassuring. It felt relatively safe though. Stopped by a supermarket on...More

Went here on our first day in Barcelona. Amazing. Thronging with crowds. Great place to people watch. We got gelatos with so many flavours as we strolled down the centre of Las Ramblas. Went back every day during our three day stay.

Same as any major shopping area anywhere in the world. Just a lot of chain stores. Off the main road there are more local shops and restaurants, but all seem to sell the same items and food. No Spanish culture here. Could have stayed home...More

But it is crowded, a lot of not espaniol people are trying to sell you some stupid things. Very noisy. More beautiful streets are in the Gothic quarter.

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

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.

Right now there is an excessive heat warning. Should be very moderate to chilly by November. I would google average daily temperatures in Barcelona for November and that should help. Enjoy your trip!
