A visit in Barcelona Spain is not the same without walking the lively busy La Rambla street. This street alone is a separate item in my itinerary. I was lucky enough that both the hotels where I stayed were both located right in-front of La Rambla. I always end my day by walking in this street, either to get something to eat in La Boqueria Market which is just along the La Rambla street, or to just stroll and try some desserts along the way. Time passed so quickly whenever I was in this area, the food kiosk alone are worth stopping for, there are also plenty of all-fresco dining, take-out eatery, and shops for souvenirs to take home.
