Long Description:
La Rambla is a pedestrianized tree lined, shopping street in central Barcelona, popular with both tourists, locals, & still life characters. Las Rambles connects Plaça Catalunya in the centre of Barcelona to the Christopher Columbus monument, & the Coastal boardwalk.

From Wikipedia:
"La Rambla can be considered a series of shorter streets, each differently named, hence the plural form Les Rambles (Spanish: Las Ramblas). From the Plaça de Catalunya toward the harbour, the street is successively the Rambla de Canaletes, the Rambla dels Estudis, the Rambla de Sant Josep, the Rambla dels Caputxins, and the Rambla de Santa Monica. Construction of the Maremàgnum in the early 1990s resulted in a continuation of La Rambla on a wooden walkway into the harbour, the Rambla de Mar.

La Rambla can be crowded, especially during prime time tourist season. Most of the time, there are many more tourists than locals occupying the Rambla, which has changed the shopping selection, as well as the character of the street in general. For this reason also, it has become a prime target for pick pocketing." Text Source:
