La Rambla – Barcelona, Day 12

After spending the majority of our day visiting the Gaudi sites, we took a crazy taxi ride to La Rambla. I basically knew what to expect as I had done some research and watched some videos. Even though I had watched some shows on La Rambla I wasn’t ready for how pretty it really is. The trees are amazing. It was so unusual how stalls of wares were in sections, such as flowers, then restaurants, then gelato, art work, street performers, etc. instead of mixing them up they were all together in sections. Kind of neat, until you wanted gelato and it was at the other end!

The street was definitely a highlight for me, with the flower booths and trees.

La Rambla is a street in central Barcelona. A tree-lined pedestrian street, it stretches for 1.2 kilometres connecting Plaça de Catalunya in the centre with the Christopher Columbus Monument at Port Vell. La Rambla forms the boundary between the quarters of Barri Gòtic, to the east, and El Raval, to the west. Wikipedia

Then there was the gelato and beer, not together of course.

The trees hung over the crowds on the street…

The buildings were unique, one even decorated with umbrellas…

And a great photo of my travel mates, who did not plan on the outfits of the day…

What a great day. All my photos of the day were taken on my iPhone.

Until tomorrow, LAF
