Also known as La Rambla (Las Ramblas consists of several stretches of Ramblas), this 1.2km tree-lined street is where many tourists identify with the city. Forming a boundary between the neighbourhoods of Barri Gòtic and El Raval, the street is lined with outdoor markets, shops, restaurants and cafes, and street performers. Stop in one of the many cafes along the way for some tapas before continuing down towards the harbour and beachfront.
This street and area are safe and there are usually extra police patrols during the busy summer months watching out for the pickpockets and petty crime. As with all cities, keep your valuables safe and enjoy the Ramblas!
