The Ramblas: Barcelona’s Heart and Soul

The Ramblas, or Las Ramblas when you’re in Spain, is one of the most famous and iconic boulevards of Barcelona. Stretching for approximately 1.2km from the Port Vell to Placa Catalunya, this street is hugely popular with both locals and travellers alike and provides one of the main thoroughfares of the city. Home to street-side cafés, bars, shops, and lined with trees, it’s a place to wander, shop, or simply sit with a coffee or a beer and watch the world go by. The Ramblas was described by Spanish poet Federico García Lorca as being "the only street in the world which I wish would never end.” It's an exciting destination in a city filled with history, culture and style.

How to visit The Ramblas

It’s not difficult to find yourself in The Ramblas. Centrally located, it has a pull that draws people, and you’ll know when you’re getting close. The street is best visited during the day, when the atmosphere and beauty of the street can be fully enjoyed. At night, The Ramblas turns into a different type of place - bars throw open their doors, and the street comes alive with music and lights.

What to do in The Ramblas

Visiting this street is one of the premier things to do in Barcelona, offering beautiful buildings, energy, among other highlights. The Ramblas is also home to the modernist La Boqueria market, a colorful indoor market that features great architecture, plenty of color, and items to buy including fresh fish, herbs, meats, insects, and much more. Plaça Catalunya, which is where the street ends, is one of the most important squares in Barcelona, combining the new and old aspects of the city to create a social meeting point that’s a great spot to spend some time exploring.
