Las Ramblas

Soak up the atmosphere in Barcelona’s thriving heart, packed with tapas bars, flower stalls and lively street performers.

Lose yourself in the sights, smells and sounds of, Las Ramblas a busy district located in the heart of Barcelona. Take a walk down the kilometre-long tree-lined boulevard and join visitors and locals enjoying the lively street entertainment, buzzing atmosphere and local cuisine on offer in the many cafés and restaurants.

Las Ramblas divides the old town into two distinct areas. The main street itself runs all the way from Placa Catalunya in the north right down to Port Vell to the south. On one side of the boulevard, you’ll find the medieval Gothic Quarter with its old-world charms, whilst on the other, there’s the more modern and multicultural Raval neighbourhood.

Even if you only have an hour to spare, you will be able to walk the length of La Rambla and savour the atmosphere. Stop off for a drink at one of the bars or cafés dotted around the area, or pause for lunch and enjoy a steaming plate of seafood paella in one of the restaurants. As a major tourist hub, bear in mind that prices are of course higher here than in other parts of the city.

Among the highlights worth checking out is the famous market, La Boqueria, which you can enter from La Rambla. Here, you can pick up fresh fruit, vegetables, seafood and foie gras. Another beauty is the Liceu Theatre, a grand 1830s structure hosting ballet and opera in its beautiful red and gold coloured auditorium. Nearby, look out for the colourful mosaic by surrealist artist Joan Miró, which you’ll find in the pavement of La Rambla close to the theatre.

This is a busy area, and pickpockets are on the lookout for unsuspecting visitors, so hold on tight to your belongings. To the south of the area there is a handful of nightclubs that should best be avoided at night.

Close to the port and Barcelona’s main attractions, you can also reach Las Ramblas on three metro stations and four bus lines.
