    Favorite thing: The Ramblas has to be my favorite spot in all of Barcelona. But there are many, many things to do.

    Fondest memory: Walking down the Ramblas with the canopy of trees overhead, the sidewalk cafes, and vendor shops. It was a great experience. There are many sidewalk cafe's to sit and enjoy a drink, to talk wth friends and enjoy the view. This without a doubt, is one of my most best memories EVER.

    Favorite thing: It was great visiting Barcelona, just a few months prior to the Olympic Games of 1992. I love the 'Ramblas', and that will be the first place, I would take first time visitors to this great city.

    Fondest memory: Artistic, talented and full of energy, the people of Barcelona. Those were my impressions of this city. The difference atmosphere of Barcelona when compared to Madrid is amazing. Just a real beautiful place.

    by geecho Written Aug 24, 2002

    Favorite thing: Walk Las Ramblas, taking in all the site, smells and sounds of Barcelona.

    Fondest memory: I loved going to the market off of Las Ramblas in the early morning for everything from fish to fruit.
    My fondest memory was experiencing the subway stations - beautiful and clean with classical music wafting through the platforms.

    Favorite thing: La Rambla
    Five separate streets strung end to end, La Rambla
    (also called Las Ramblas) is a tree-lined pedestrian
    boulevard packed with buskers, living statues, mimes
    and itinerant salespeople selling everything from
    lottery tickets to jewellery. The noisy bird market
    on the second block of La Rambla is worth a stop, as
    is the nearby Palau de la Virreina, a grand 18th-
    century rococo mansion, with arts and entertainment
    information and a ticket office. Next door is La
    Rambla's most colourful market, the Mercat de la
    Boqueria. Just south of the Boqueria the Mosaïc de
    Miró punctuates the pavement, with one tile signed by
    the artist. The next section of La Rambla boasts the
    Gran Teatre del Liceu, the famous 19th-century opera
    house. Below the Plaça Reial, La Rambla becomes
    decidedly seedy, with strip clubs and peep shows. La
    Rambla terminates at the lofty Monument a Colom
    (Monument to Columbus) and the harbour. You can
    ascend the monument by lift. Just west of the
    monument, on Avinguda de les Drassanes, stand the
    Reials Drassanes (Royal Shipyards), which house the
    fascinating Museu Marítim. It has more seafaring
    paraphernalia than you'd care to wag a sextant at -
    boats, models, maps, paintings, ships' figureheads
    and 16th-century galleys.

    The picture is frmm many clowns and street shows in La rambla.

    Favorite thing: You must walk along 'las Ramblas' and sit in a terrace and spend some time waching the people. It's great ¡¡¡

    Fondest memory: My fondest memory of Barcelona are the people, the sea and the nigth life. This things are what Barcelona is: BAR --> Nigth Life - CEL --> the sky and the people - and ONA --> the sea.

    La Rambla

    by unexplored Written Jun 8, 2003

    Favorite thing: Spain's most famous street. Flanked by narrow traffic lanes, the middle of La Rambla is a broad, pedestrian boulevard, lined with cafes and restaurants and crowded everyday.

    Favorite thing: You surely must walk on La Ramblas, this is the place to be, see and be seen, this is a bit the Camps Ellysees of Barcelona. Just Be careful for pick-pockets.
