Architecture in Las Ramblas, Barcelona

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.

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
