THE HISTORY OF LAS RAMBLAS FREE WALKING TOUR
Let’s enjoy a less crowded Barcelona for a tour of Las Ramblas, the most famous avenue of the city, full of amazing stories and beautiful views.
La Rambla, or Las Ramblas, is much more than one of the most celebrated and visited streets in the world. A walk down this avenue is a voyage into the soul of Barcelona and the history of the city and the lives of its people in all ages.
In this tour we’ll stroll from Plaza Catalunya to Columbus Monument, telling forgotten stories and showing the most surprising details, some of them hidden to the common tourist.
We will explore its history and evolution since the Middle Ages with its walls and convents until the golden age of modernism, when it became a fancy street of theatres, cafés and cabarets. We will talk about both traumatic and joyful events and about all the people of every social class and age that have strolled down here for centuries.
