How to visit Las Ramblas ?
The word " Las Ramblas" is the Arabic word for "dry flowers".
Las Ramblas is the most animated artery of the city. It is divided in five sections. Rambla Canaletes, Rambla dels Estudis, also called La Rambla dels Ocells ( Avenue of the Birds) as it used to be a traditional site of a bird market. Rambla de Sant Josep it is also well-known as the Rambla de les Flors (Rambla of the Flowers).
In the 19C this was the only place in Barcelona that flowers were sold. The flower market now stands alongside great kiosks selling all manner of books, magazines and newspaper from Spain and abroad. Rambla dels Caputxins and Rambla de Santa Monica.
This is the place where people from Barcelona used to meet. Now a days, you will see mostly foreigners along the Ramblas. Stoll under the threes, admire the street artists, look at the alive statues.
