BARCELONA: LA RAMBLA


La Rambla is one of the most lively and nice places to walk along in Barcelona. Walking along this boulevard is the best way to go from Plaça Catalunya to the Port Vell and the beach.

Artists, interesting buildings, florist's and kiosks give a colourful and bright look to this boulevard, which is also a perfect starting poing to discover two beautiful medieval districts in Barcelona: the Gothic Quarter and El Raval.
