When I say Barcelona, you probably say “Las Ramblas”. There are two things you need to know about that name. The “Ramblas” you are referring to is officially called “La Rambla”, but you are not entirely wrong by placing the word in the plural. Barcelona has various “ramblas” indeed, less-known than “La Rambla” but not less beautiful.
Today, we would like to guide you through “Rambla de Catalunya”. All ramblas look the same, which means there is a large path for pedestrians in the middle to stroll along. The Rambla de Catalunya is parallel to the famous Passeig de Gràcia. Let’s start at the end of the street, that you can reach from the metro station Diagonal. A thing you cannot miss is the enormous sculpture of a lying giraffe. Whereas on “La Rambla”, you will find many human statues, “Rambla de Catalunya” has different sculptures.
Take a look around you as you stroll down this rambla, because beside many shops, there are many beautiful modernist buildings to be found as well on on this street. At the end of Rambla de Catalunya, just before reaching Plaça Catalunya, you will find another sculpture. Not as big as the first one, but equally funny.
