The Rambla, a historic boulevard in Barcelona, was a meeting point for people from all walks of life in the past because of its convenient location. Even Federico Garcia Lorca, the Spanish poet, loved alluring La Rambla and said the promenade was “the only street in the world which I wish would never end”. Its infectious charm still draws hordes of locals and tourists. It is the place for watching the world go by, appreciating aesthetics of landmarks and skills of street artists, and shopping souvenirs. Choose from scores of cafes and restaurants lining both sides of the boulevard to satiate your appetite whetted by an amble.
