The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.

Excelent place to visit
Sep 2021
Las Ramblas is a very nice place to visit if you want to receive the full tourist experience, There is a lot of beautiful things you can do there, specially if you like TAPAS! they are amazing and every place does them a little different.
Take your time to stroll around the Ramblas and stop to one, two or three puds to get your fix of Tapas you will enjoy them I can garanty you that. Also, make sure to keep your personal items (Phone, wallet , money, cards, passports etc) real close to you the pick pocketers love to be around the area and take the easy pray. So if you are aren't careful you will not have a good experience in las Ramblas. OTher than PP there is nothing else to worry about, just the places you want to stop to eat Tapas and drinksome good wine.

Very busy street in Barcelona.
Jul 2021
This is on e of the busiest street in the city. Tourists frequent all day and do not go there unaware of pick pockets. It is the best route to the market of St. Joseph which is amazing and the portal to the Gothic quarter. The street vendors are very good.

Cruising the Ramblas
Jul 2021
In each of our 4 days we walked Las Ramblas from to bottom and back. This is good people watching and will bring you by many interesting places to pop in. The better spots are up by Placa de Catalunya and Placa Reial .

We had a nice late morning walk along Las Ramblas.. stopping at a few stalls and enjoying the general ambience. It is very touristy and we were cautious given the previous reviews re pickpockets. The market is one of the best stops.

Getting a hotel in one of the streets connected to La Rambla is perfect
Jun 2021 • Couples
Staying at la rambla ( 3days are enough) is the best thing ever. So many restaurants, so many places to drink, not too far from the beach and also close to stores (like zara, apple store etc). Everything is in a close range and can be walked. The streets connected to la rambla makes is better.

A few sad things: a lot of beggers and some areas that stink.

Note: maybe for families with little kids it is not ideal. I would advice closer to the beach. In the night it is definitely safe, but drunk and wasted people everywhere (might not be a good experience for religious people).

Touristic

A must walk through street when in Barcelona, but the be fair quite overrated. However the street is very touristic and busy. I definitely recommend paying the market hall a visit which is halfway through the street.

Great place

Perfect walking area with different shops and places to eat. Not the best one for shopping, but the atmosphere is fantastic. Beware of thieves, I've a lot of stories of tourists been robbed there.
