Las Ramblas is probably the most famous street in Barcelona and is a long boulevard running through the centre of the medieval part of the city and divides the neighbourhood of El Raval from El Gotico. It is a very active and noisy part of town with hotels, hostels, tourist boutiques and restaurants.

Las ramblas with a distance of 1.3km, runs from the port at the Columbus monument "Tore Colom" all the way up to Plaza Catalunya. At the lower end near the Columbus Column are living statues. Las ramblas is pedestrianised with roads on either side for limited traffic such as taxis and buses.

On this page I list some of the attractions that can be found on or adjacent to las Ramblas such as La boqueria, Plaza Reial, Liceo Theatre and Palau Guell. Take care in this part of town as it is frequented by pickpockets. At night time las ramblas transforms into a party zone with the nightclubs in Plaza Reial and the lower part of Las Ramblas. This of course attracts the seedy aspects of Barcelona in the form of pick pockets that love to prey on drunk tourists. It is also a bit of a red-light district at night.

For transportation the Metro green line runs under las Ramblas with a stop at Drassanes near the port end Columbus Column, a stop at Liceo in front of the theatre and a stop at the top in Plaza Catalunya.

Happy Exploring!
