La Rambla street - Las Ramblas
La Rambla (also known as Las Ramblas) is the most famous street in Barcelona. It is in the Ciutat Vella (old city) of Barcelona. La Rambla divides the neighbourhoods of the Barri Gotic, the gothic Quarter of Barcelona and the neighbourhood of El Raval. This famous and bustling boulevard stretches for about 1.2 kilometers (0.75 miles) through the heart of the city, from Barcelona's central square Plaça de Catalunya to the Columbus Monument at Port Vell harbour. 

La Rambla in Barcelona's old city center is Barcelona's most famous tourist street and the most famous walking street. The official name is 'La Rambla' but people often say 'Las Ramblas' because La Rambla is a long street with six street sections and each section has a different Rambla name and its own character. This means that are six connecting Rambla streets that join together to form one long Rambla.

It's a bit confusing but don't worry. You can say La Rambla, or Las Ramblas. Both are fine.  The different Rambla sections include (from top to bottom): Rambla de Canaletes, Rambla dels Estudis, Rambla de Sant Josep (La Boqueria market is located here), Rambla dels Caputxins, Rambla de Santa Mònica, and Rambla de Mar.

La Rambla is one of Barcelona's most iconic and vibrant streets, known for its lively atmosphere, diverse street performers, shops, cafes, and cultural attractions. Along La Rambla, you'll find street performers, flower stalls, newsstands, outdoor cafes, and a variety of shops - and pickpockets, so be attentive.

La Rambla is also home to several notable buildings and landmarks making it a central and dynamic part of Barcelona's urban life.
