La Rambla

La Rambla is the tourist heartbeat of Barcelona, packed with tourists yet a wonderful neighborhood to just hang out in.

Know Before You Go

The prices are for tourists but at the port end the restaurants are cheaper.
Beware of pickpockets.
The side roads are very interesting, take a detour from the main market.
Kids will have a great time with the street performers, but keep them close in the crowds.
Both a tourist magnet and a peek into Catalan culture, La Rambala is Barcelona’s most famous street. Its name was taken from the seasonal stream that once ran through there, called ‘raml’ in Arabic, but from the early Middle Ages on it was better known as the Cagalell or Stream of Shit. Now set in the middle of La Rambala is a large tree-lined pedestrian boulevard, which is crowded every day until the early morning hours. The street is divided into five sections: Rambla de Canaletes, Rambla dels Estudis, Rambla de Sant Josep (or de les Flors), Rambla dels Caputxins, and Rambla de Santa Mònica. There are many sights along La Rambala, including the La Boqueria market, the Teatre Principal, and a mosaic by Joan Miró. Careful of the sensory overload you may feel, as you will be surrounded by souvenir hawkers, pavement artists, mimes and living statues. Happy strolling!
