Walking down Las Ramblas

Large arrow left

Las Ramblas, they say, is the heart of Barcelona. While dragging my suitcase down the street, on the first evening that I arrived in this city, I knew it right then why it is so.

On a rainy morning, while walking down this famous street, trying to catch up with the walking tour guy, I looked up just to find this stunning building adorned with gorgeous Asian umbrellas.

Casa Bruno Quadras was once an umbrella factory in the 1880s. It has a Chinese dragon on the eclectic facade, said to be looking over the city. Ramblas umbrellas and the dragon is a pleasurable sight along with the wonderful street buskers that light up the street.
