Las Ramblas Tours

Barcelona's most famous street, Las Ramblas runs from the Columbus Monument in Port Vell to Plaça de Catalunya. To walk its tree-shaded pedestrian expanse is to be inundated with sensation: souvenir hawkers selling beach blankets and trinkets, street performers posing for selfies with tourists, florists adjusting their arrangements, restaurants serving tapas and paella at al fresco tables, and artists painting caricatures for passersby. It's a microcosm of Barcelona, and it's almost always busy, day or night.

The Basics
Spend any time in Barcelona and you'll likely find yourself strolling this leafy pedestrian thoroughfare. It makes an appearance on just about every city sightseeing tour, such as walking, biking, and Segway tours. Several notable attractions line its sidewalks, including La Boqueria Market, the Liceu Opera (Gran Teatre del Liceu), the Barcelona Wax Museum (Museu de Cera), the Erotic Museum of Barcelona (Museu Erotic), and Plaça Reial. As the border between the El Raval and Gothic Quarter (Barri Gotic) neighborhoods, it passes right through the heart of Barcelona's old city.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Las Ramblas is an excellent place for people-watching.
  • Stay aware of your belongings when walking along Las Ramblas, as the area tends to attract pickpockets.
  • Bring some cash for street souvenirs or to have your portrait drawn by a cartoonist.

How to Get There
Las Ramblas (sometimes known as La Rambla) is within walking distance of most attractions in the old city (and in the surrounding neighborhoods of the Gothic Quarter and El Raval), but it's also easily accessed via the metro at the Drassanes, Liceu, or Plaça Catalunya stations.

When to Get There
Las Ramblas can be just as crowded at 2am as at 2pm. During peak tourist season (July and August), the pedestrian walkway running between the two lanes of traffic gets especially busy, but it also makes for lively people-watching. If you'd prefer to see the street when it’s relatively quiet, plan to visit first thing in the morning when the sun is up but the night owls of Barcelona are still in bed.

Pla de l'Os: Work of Art Underfoot
Each day, thousands of people walk right over a mosaic by Catalan artist Joan Miró known as Pla de l'Os. The pavement mosaic, set about halfway along La Rambla, was installed by the artist in 1976 near the place where he was born 83 years prior. After decades of foot traffic, the mosaic became so faded that the Barcelona City Council stepped in and restored it in 2006 to mark its 30th anniversary.
