The old city meets the modern in Las Ramblas, a series of pedestrian streets lined by outdoor markets, shops, cafes, and restaurants. To stroll through this bustling district is to walk through the history and culture of one of the world’s most exciting urban centers. Celebrated poet Federico García Lorca once described it as "the only street in the world which I wish would never end." Famous for its throbbing urban energy, this colorful avenue and tree-lined walkway are one of the busiest areas in the city, so it’s not surprising that it’s constantly thronged by tourists. To avoid crowds, head down some of the smaller side streets, where you can find inexpensive souvenirs, friendly locals, and live music.

Many bars and numerous shops invite you to stroll, but because of the large number of tourists also attract unwelcome side effects. You are constantly approached by street vendors, beggars openly carry physical disabilities to the show, in some areas it smells so much like marijuana that you almost get high yourself. Pay attention to pickpockets, also to "friendly people" who are looking for body contact in a dancing way. If you are not deterred by this, however, you can collect many great impressions!
