Along the La Ramblas ~ The Seventh Day

La Ramblas is the love/hate of tourist, for it is filled with interesting places to visit as well as shopping, yet the Ramblas is filled with street walkers and petty crimes.

Nevertheless, along La Ramblas there is the ever colorful Mercat la Boqueria. This market gives you an experience of how the locals do their marketing and their dining habits.

Along the La Ramblas, Palau Guell discreetly sits among the other buildings. Palau Guell is a palace designed by Gaudi himself, for the Guell family. See how ingeniously Gaudi designed a small apartment block space into a grand palace complete with underground stables.

Walking down the Ramblas to Port Vell, one can find the monument where Christopher Columbus stands.
