    statue Colon

    La Rambla begins at the foot of the Colon statue, it extends to Plaça Catalunya. A single watchword for strolling down the most popular of Barcelona's avenues: slow down.

    The crowd that walks there sets the pace and conveys the quiet atmosphere of the city. La Rambla is a favorite spot for early evening strolls.

    The people of Barcelona enjoy it with friends and family before going to dinner on the port or in the old town.



    the merchands

    During the summer and weekends a market runs along the street. Unsurprisingly, as in any self-respecting good market, you can buy scented candles, castanets or a poster of Che there.

    I am of the opinion that the interest of a market is not necessarily what is sold there but the good-natured and pleasant atmosphere which emerges from it.

    Tourists try to negotiate their Sagrada Familia trivets in Catalan, kids watch for their handbags, all overseen by a living statue of Don Quixote. 

    living statue

    The living statues are the monuments of the Rambla. Buffalo Bill, Charly Chaplin and the Invisible Man silently vie for the favors of walkers.

    A little further on, a young Spaniard clad in a huge pink suit and dragging a tiny suitcase tries, laughing, to blend in with the tourists.

    La Rambla is perfect for a stroll, for a drink or lunch, it is better to get away from it.
