Las Ramblas

La Rambla. (Open Map)


Pure street theatre

Once a riverbed running alongside the Barri Gòtic, this has always been a meeting place, these days, rather than a promenade for locals, Las Ramblas is where tourist crowds from every corner of the globe congregate to gawk in amazement at street performers and each other.

This mile-long boulevard running from Plaça de Catalunya to the Columbus Monument is Barcelona's most famous thoroughfare and an essential part of any visit to the city.
