Las Ramblas avenue

If you're going to Barcelona, you should definitely make a point of strolling down Las Ramblas. This is the city's most emblematic street, and is thronging with people and activity at all hours of the day and night. Its central pedestrianised promenade is lined with flower stalls and kiosks. You'll always see people strolling up and down, and it's very popular with both tourists and locals alike so there's never a dull moment. What's more, you'll find numerous street artists setting up there, particularly including a wide variety of original mimes. It starts in Plaza de Cataluña square and ends beside the sea at the Columbus Monument, and runs through the whole of the old part of town. La Rambla is known by several names depending on the section: Rambla de Canaletes, Rambla de los Estudios, Rambla de las Flores or Sant Josep, Rambla del Centro or Rambla de los Capuchinos, and Rambla de Santa Mónica. It is lined with buildings such as the Gran Teatre del Liceu theatre, the Palau de la Virreina palace and the La Boquería market.
