La Rambla (Las Ramblas)

Juan Miro Mosaic at La Rambla Barcelona

La Rambla is the main walking street in Barcelona and one of the most popular tourist attractions. The 1,2km long street is famous for its street performers. From all sorts of live statues to football magicians, there’s something for everybody.

The Rambla is also one of the top shopping destinations in the city, featuring world class brand names along with the locals, offering something for every budget.

Some of Barcelona’s top attractions are lined along this street: the Boqueria market, Plaça Reial, Gran Liceu theatre…

The street can be overcrowded, and is a hotspot for pickpockets, and prostitutes.
The street connects the Columbus monument in the Old Port to the Plaça de Catalunya. From the square, Passeig de Gracia continues in the same direction.

La Rambla can be considered a series of shorter streets, each differently named, hence the plural form Les Rambles (the original Catalan form; in Spanish it is Las Ramblas). The street is successively called:

  • Rambla de Canaletes – the site of the Font de Canaletes fountain
  • Rambla dels Estudis – the site of the former Jesuit University, whose only remainder is the Church of Bethlehem
  • Rambla de Sant Josep (or de les Flors) – the site of an open-air flower market
  • Rambla dels Caputxins – the site of a former Capuchin monastery, now dominated by the Liceu opera-house
  • Rambla de Santa Mònica – named after the convent of St. Monica, now an arts centre.
