It’s the most famous street in Barcelona, likely in all of Spain. It’s La Rambla, and we headed there Sunday as soon as we finally got caught up on our sleep. Much as I dislike Spanish subways, the Metro turned out to be the best way to get there from our hotel (at the Sants station). Head for the Catalunya station if you are going there.
La Rambla is four traffic lanes divided by a grand pedestrian mall. It is the place to take a stroll, day or night.
Everything is for sale in the stalls that line the pedestrian mall.
Barcelona is the home city of Antoni Gaudi, whose name added a word to the English language. Architecture and objects of Barcelona reflect Gaudi’s signature style.
Spanish cuisine along the mall is inviting.
We eventually picked a place just off La Rambla, the Restaurant International. Watch for a review in the future.
Come sundown, and La Rambla puts on a new face.
