Everyone knows La Rambla, the mile-long strolling boulevard in the heart of the city. Stretching from Plaça Catalunya to Barceloneta, it’s often the first stop on most tourists’ must-see lists. Shops, restaurants, stalls, street performers, human statues and a carnival atmosphere make this infamous street a prime tourist trap. While it may deserve one walk-through during your stay, there are plenty of other ramblas scattered throughout the city that will give you outstanding gastronomy and shopping with a local flare. On these lesser-known streets, you can also get a glimpse into the neighbourhoods whose diversity, colour and soul are personified by a pavement.
