Las Ramblas Street Performers in Barcelona, Spain
Walking Las Ramblas is a rite of passage, an essential activity of Barcelona tourists, and Las Ramblas street performers are part of the fun.
Barcelona’s famous and popular street is both convenient and entertaining. At one end is Placa de Catalunya and the other Port Vell. The Barri Gotic quarter borders Las Ramblas and on the other side, Mercat de la Boqueria is a popular market destination worth a look.
Las Ramblas is situated in the middle of all this activity and provides entertainment with its street performers, vendors and restaurants.

Most Barcelona visitors make it down Las Ramblas at least once during their stay. The street is a very convenient walkway.
While being entertained on Las Ramblas, use common sense. Just like in any city in the world, when gathered around other “tourists”, be careful of your belongings. This is where pick-pockets do their best work. Of course, your IDs and credit cards will be extra protect by using a money belt.
One of the hotels I stayed at in Barcelona required that the room key be kept at the reception desk. The hotel staff said that they had problems with keys being stolen so they thought it better to hold onto the keys behind the counter.
Now that’s a sign to be careful of your belongings.
