Notice the Architecture
When you are in Las Ramblas, make sure to look up the buildings to get a feel of the architecture here. Several buildings flaunt magnificent architecture from cultures all over the world. Some of the highlights are the Liceu Opera House, the Japanese paintings and decorations and the Chinese-style architecture of the Sabadell bank.
Clap for the Street Performers
Las Ramblas is famous for its street performers dressed as exceptional human statues. The performers are outlandishly dressed in stunning costumes. Together, all the human statues convert Las Ramblas into an open air sculpture museum. Perhaps, this is the only place where you can see statues scratching their nose and adjusting their dresses! In addition to the human statues, you can also see acrobats, dancers and clowns at Las Ramblas.
Take a Trip Up the Columbus Monument
Visit the 60m tall Columbus Monument and take the tiny lift up to the very top to enjoy the best view of the city. The monument was constructed to honor Christopher Columbus for his first voyage overseas.
Eat at the La Boqueira Food Market
The food market at La Boqueira presents a stunning display of foods from around the world. Try some of the Spanish specialties here. You can see huge varieties of candied sweets, fruits, vegetables, meats and foods that you might have never seen before.
See the Liceu Opera House
The Liceu is one of the most famous theaters in Barcelona. Besides the shows that go on in the theater, the architecture and interiors of the theater are worth seeing. Although it’s an opera house, several other shows also take place here.
Visit the Canaletas Fountain
The Canaletas Fountain is an ornate 19th century piece of art with a lamp post as its crown. It is located in the upper part of Las Ramblas. The design is worth a visit.
