La Rambla, also known as Las Ramblas is a street in central Barcelona that is very popular for sightseers/tourists. It is a 0.75-mile tree-lined mall and runs through the centre of Barcelona, it separates the city’s Gothic Quarter ‘Barri Gotic’ from the ‘El Raval’ area of the city. La Rambla was laid out in 1766, it was immediately used by the locals due to its width compared to the tight side streets. It immediately became a place to socialise and little stalls, shops and leisure activities opened and increased in the years that followed. The street in the present day is a thriving part of the city which is packed from early in the day to late at night.
The street is accessible by many side streets and is located in the centre of the city. Buses 59 and V13 travel to La Rambla.
