Perhaps there is no better way to truly feel the spirit of Barcelona than just leisurely strolling along its streets and boulevards. One of the most visited streets of Barca by tourists will be discussed in this article.
Rambla Boulevard, Barcelona
The Rambla (La Rambla or Rambles) is a famous pedestrian street in the very center of the city, stretching for 1200 meters from Plaça Catalunya to the Columbus monument on the promenade. As a rule, a visit to this Spanish analogue of the Moscow Old Arbat is included in most sightseeing tours of Barcelona.
By the way, Rambla is not one street at all, but as many as five separate unique and in its own way interesting boulevards, turning into one another: Canaletes, Estudis, Flors, Rambla Kapucinov and Rambla St. Monica Sometimes it also includes the sixth street, the so-called Sea Rambla.
