Strolling along Las Ramblas
undoubtedly, a unique experience for those who are lucky enough to live it…
Colors, smells, people from all over the world take advantage of every minute of the day in this unique place in the world. Today, we take a walk through one of the most visited and charming corners of Barcelona.
Barcelona’s famous Ramblas are approximately 1.2 kilometers long.
At one end, the south, is the Port Vell and the north end is bounded by the Plaza de Cataluña. On the sides, the ramblas are delimited by the Raval neighborhood on the left (if you look towards Plaza de Cataluña) and on the right one of the most beautiful and charming neighborhoods of Barcelona, the Gothic Quarter (Barri Gòtic).
Along Las Ramblas there are dozens of bars, restaurants and beautiful stores. Touring, seeing and enjoying each of these establishments is part of the pleasure of enjoying Las Ramblas.
And if this is your first visit to the city, we recommend you enjoy the comings and goings, the hustle and bustle and the magic of this charming corner of Barcelona sitting in a bar while enjoying a sangria.
But not everything in Las Ramblas are stores and restaurants, not at all! There are many other attractions that make this place unique. For example, you will find live performances in the street of any kind of artist; human statues, the famous mimes of Las Ramblas; countless graphic artists able to make you in record time a realistic portrait or a funny caricature; and for those looking for cultural and historical tourism, also in Las Ramblas you will find places of interest:
The Wax Museum, the monument to Christopher Columbus, the Boqueria Modernist Market, etc.
There is so much to see, do, know and enjoy in Las Ramblas, that you might need several days of your trip to get to know them well and thoroughly. And yet, you will be left wanting more, wanting to come back.
In Going out in Barcelona, we wanted to bring you a little closer to Las Ramblas. So that if you’ve already been, you’ll be eager to return; so that if you’re coming, you’ll look forward to the day; and so that if you haven’t been and Barcelona wasn’t on your list of destinations to visit, you’ll change your mind.
We have slipped through the crowds, strolled through the stalls we have found on our way, stopped at the Boqueria Market, stopped to admire the talent of some of the artists who give life to this place, found the Teatre del Liceu on our way, visited the Wax Museum and ended our tour with our eyes up admiring the famous Christopher Columbus Monument.
And as a picture is worth a thousand words, below you can see our tour of Las Ramblas in Barcelona and enjoy with us this special place.
