Snap shots of living statues on Las Ramblas

Large arrow left

Las Ramblas are a Barcelona cliché. But it's one of those classic Barcelona experiences that no visitor should miss. Be careful with your wallets and purses, as this is an area where petty theft is rampant, and enjoy the living statues. Drop them a coin, and they'll usually do a trick, or cooperate with you if you want to pose with them for pictures. While you're in the area, be sure to stop off for a snack at La Boqueria Market and meet the city's Gigants (massive puppets used in Parades) at El Palau de la Virreina.

A final warning: don't shop or eat in the stores and restaurants along this street. Tourist trap is an understatement for this area.
