THINGS TO DO IN BARCELONA
- Stroll along the following famous streets in Ciutat Vella
- Las Ramblas or La Rambla, a gorgeous tree-lined pedestrian walkway, the busiest and most lively street of the city. Mostly occupied by tourists, expect to pay higher prices for lower-quality food and drink. Avoid the groups of people supposedly betting on a game played on a cardboard table, they are thieves. Head off into some of the side streets for a cheaper, more local, and authentic experience of Barcelona. Often called Las Ramblas, because it is actually a series of several different streets each called 'Rambla de ____', the sections also have distinct feels. As you get closer to Plaça Catalunya, you find more street performers doing stunts. In the middle, you'll find street performers in costumes. Towards the pier, there are artists who will do pencil drawings, paintings, etc.
- La Plaça Catalunya. The epicenter of the city and main transportation hub connecting all the major streets, the Plaça is known for its fountains and statues, plus the shops that surround it. A favourite meeting spot for locals.
- El Portal de l'Àngel. This large pedestrian walkway is one of the most expensive streets in all of Spain and offers visitors many new and stylish shops to browse.
