Las Ramblas

By Unknown - 9:11 PM

Regardless its touristy status, walking Las Ramblas was such a wonderful experience.
Before I get in details about the Ramblas street, first allow me to show you the Font Magica de Montjuïc. The Magic Fountain Montjuïc is a vibrant, colorful & musical water fountain show.
For the months of October - April the light & music performances take place every half-hours on Fridays & Saturdays between 7PM - 8:30PM.
With no rest & full of excitement we found our way to the fountain just in time to catch the last half-hour show.

Las Ramblas was only a hop, skip & jump away from the Magic Fountain.
We stopped for a cup of hot cafe con leches, people watched & enjoyed the nice cold breeze.

Las Ramblas is Barcelona's ever-popular strolling wide boulevard filled with crowds of tourists, souvenir kiosks, flower stalls & cafes. This wide boulevard is about 3/4 mile long & connects the busy squares with the Columbus Monument &  the city's waterfront.

Further down Las Ramblas on the left side is the entrance to Plaça Reial. It was the liveliest square bustling with people & MANY cafes with outdoor sitting to choose from.

We were curious to why there was a long queue outside of Les Quinze Nits restaurant but decided to come back tomorrow for lunch. And in the mean time, we settled for one of the restaurants on the main street to get some was almost midnight after all.

We shared a plate of Catalonia bread&butter and a large pot of seafood paella.

Having filled our belly with plenty of carbs, an impromptu walk was much needed.

Our feet carried us to the end of the Rambla & to the Rambla de Mar with a wooden suspension bridge with a wavy pattern, symbolizing the connection of the city with the Mediterranean.

It was a beautiful night for a stroll & we walked as far as we could before sleep got the best of us & called it a night.

More travel photos next time.
