La Rambla

La Rambla is one of the most popular streets in Barcelona both with tourists and locals. It is situated between Barri Gòtic and El Raval and connects Plaça Catalunya and the Christopher Columbus monument at Port Vell. La Rambla is also famous for a huge variety of restaurants, bars and shops which are usually open until late. You will also find Barcelona's renowned opera house the Gran Teatre del Liceu and many more places to visit such as Mercat de la Boqueria - one of the oldest city's markets - and the Centre d'Art Santa Mònica, a public museum of contemporary art.
