Las Ramblas is basically the Champs Elysees of Barcelona and even more.
You can find here everything. It is about 2 km long and is lined with trees.
Las Ramblas is split up into five sections. One for street artists, one for flower seller stands, another one for bird and small animal sellers.

There are living statues (very nice and only moving if you give them some change) and performers there all the time and great stands with the best dried fruit ever!!!! And the baby animals are extremely cute at the section named La Rambla dels Estudis.

You should also be careful with pickpockets and people making tricks with cards or balls hidden under cups, they just want to take your money away.

You can see and buy many great things, but get prepared that the boulevard is very crowded all the time!

Address:
From the Plaza Catalunya to the Monument a Colon.
