Las Rambla is one of the landmark streets of Barcelona. The approximately 1.3 km long road, in the middle a pedestrian zone, connecting Plaça Catalunya in the centre with the Christopher Columbus monument at Port Vell is probably the central transport hub in Barcelona to the port. During prime time tourist season, La Rambla can get quite crowded because it’s also one of the major attractions of the city.
Walking down Barcelona's main street one encounters numerous street performers posing as ‘human statues’. These street artists feature as imaginative as they can, from celebrities and mythological beings to imaginary characters. They prop themselves up on little boxes, wave at tourists and put up little shows for a tip. If you happen to visit La Rambla, bring all your loose change and put it aside especially, but be careful of your belongings as the street has become the prime target for pick pocketing.
