This café is a bit of a classic with wall décor panels which seem to date back to when it first opened in 1926 (Originally as a restaurant). The marble steps and columns up to the first floor - where the toilet facilities are located...More

This is a very pleasant spot to while away an hour or so watching the hustle & bustle of The Ramblas!! Characterful staff & nice coffee, although as with most pavement cafés it’s quite basic and expensive i.e. Tapas & a couple of beers €50.00!!!

La Rambla
Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry
riverbed. Now, La Rambla is a 1200-metre boulevard,
and a major draw for visitors. During the day, La
Rambla fills with pedestrians, some of which stroll
past impressive human statues and artists while others
take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at
one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic
Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and
