La Rambla is Barcelona's most famous, & likely busiest street. Partly pedestrianised this tree lined boulevard is flanked with cafes & restaurants, & is packed with people from morning until past midnight. It cuts through the city from Plaça Catalunya (Catalonia Square) to the Columbus Monument & Port Vell harbour. Along the way & in the blocks leading from it you will find many museums, art galleries, urban palaces, squares, & even a red light district. In addition to the Gothic quarter, gardens, markets, & monuments. A horde of street artists, musicians, & other entertainment acts also vie for attention.
The Rambla was originally a small stream that flowed just outside the city walls. In the 16th century convents, a university, & other structures were built along its banks. Though La Rambla is one street it is split into five different segments, the Rambla de Canaletes, Rambla dels Estudis, Rambla de Sant Josep, Rambla dels Caputxins, & the Rambla de Santa Monica; each taking their name from the old (& mostly now demolished) structures.
