Going up in the monument was okay, but it is a very small space, and you cannot see well out of the top. The best part of this was the bottom of the monument has a wine area that was very tasty!!! Go there :)

You can see the statue from many angles therefore Good for orientation or as a Meeting Point. Nice see View. Recommendation: include it in a beach walk or run in the morning and Enjoy the area around the Harbour and the impressive ships.

It was a nice view from the top, if you don't know Spanish, then you can't read about the history up there... For the wine part after being up on the top, we got a big glass :D but the staff who served the wine...More

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
