Second route: FROM LAS RAMBLAS TO PUERTO

For personal taste, the route starts in Carrer de Valencia, because I think that from here there is more attraction, although you can start from some other street that is more convenient.

They seem like a lot of blocks, but it’s a journey that is more than possible. In addition, there is so much to see and know, that the meters do not feel.

You just have to follow the path of the Rambla de Catalunya, all right until you reach Plaça Catalunya. From there, the Rambla (s) begins.

Walking along La Rambla, you can see La Boquería, El Liceu and taking one of the little streets that leave La Rambla, you can get to know the Plaça Reial.

Going straight on La Rambla you will reach the Monument to Colón and Puerto Viejo (Port Vell)
