La Rambla

Avenue Barcelona, Spain

Live the frenetic La Rambla

La Rambla is a one kilometer and four hundred meter long avenue in Barcelona that connects Plaça de Catalunya with the old port. This long tree-lined avenue hosts street artists, bars, restaurants and shops of all kinds. The word rambla derives from the Arabic raml (sand) and designates, as in other Spanish cities, a road carved out of a dry, underground or covered stream.

La Rambla forms the boundary between the quarters of Barri Gòtic, to the east, and El Raval, to the west. La Rambla can be crowded, especially during high season. Its popularity with tourists has affected the character of the street, with a move to pavement cafes and souvenir kiosks. The Spanish poet Federico García Lorca once said that La Rambla was "the only street in the world which I wish would never end."
