Las Ramblas

Posted by Worldouristattractions On 23:15 No comments

Las Ramblas is a beautiful and very exciting tree-lined avenue in the center of Barcelona stretching for 2 kilometers from Place Cataluña to Port Vell divided into five sections...Ramblas de Canaletes, Rambla dels Estudis, Rambla de Stan Josep, Rambla dels Caputxins and Rambla Santa Monica.

Coming from Placa Catalunya the Ramblas de Canaletes (Rambla of the Fountain) is the first stretch of this exciting avenue. As legend goes if you drink from the famous Font de Canaletes you'll always return to Barcelona.

Millions of people do return to this lovely city year after year and head straight for the Rambla because it's one of the most exciting avenues in Europe. In the 14th century there was a small stream which ran through the city to the harbor. The dried up riverbed derives its name Rambla from the Arabic word for stream.
