Of all the promenades that exist far and wide in Barcelona, Las Ramblas is undoubtedly the most picturesque, emblematic and important, as it is considered the main route for its inhabitants, traveling from Catalunya Square to the Old Port of the city.
After the confiscation of 1835, in which several convents that existed in current Las Ramblas were demolished, plane trees began to be planted in 1859. In 1860, the famous Canaletas Fountain and some flower stalls were completed.
The kiosks and shops of Las Ramblas open very early, so it is normal to see the promenade full of walkers until late at night. They visit the many cafes, bars, restaurants and shops on the promenade.
One of the great attractions of Las Ramblas is the enormous number of monuments and buildings of heritage and tourist interest, such as the Virreina Palace, the Boquería Market, the famous Liceo Theatre, the Maritime Museum and the Aquarium, which houses the largest collection of marine fauna in the Mediterranean. Other places of enormous interest that can be found very close to the promenade are the Barcelona Cathedral and San Jaime Square, where City Hall is located.
It is one of the most welcoming, bohemian and interesting places in Barcelona. As W. Somerset Maugham, the famous British writer, quite rightly stated, Las Ramblas is one of the most beautiful and pleasant promenades in the world.
