Both the city council and the Generalitat contributed money to the film in order to boost tourism in Barcelona.

The Rambla de las Flores
There is a scene in which Cristina is going to take photographs in the flower shops of La Rambla. The day that was filmed was from 7 in the morning until 12 noon and many people went to browse. So much was the commotion that they had to cut this busy street of Barcelona.

Other locations of Vicky Cristina Barcelona
We also find other places such as the Raval neighborhood, the San Felipe Neri square, the Ciutadella Park, the Rambla Catalunya, the Paseo de Gracia, the MNAC and the MACBA.

The rumor spread that there had been a lot of pressure during the filming but Woody Allen himself denied it saying that Barcelona was a city that he loves. Which is a cosmopolitan city, very urban energetic and that is much more difficult to shoot in New York, for example.
