The Rambla is a living, breathing spectacle of well-deserved world fame. It starts at Plaza de Catalunya and continues towards the Mirador de Colón, on the harbour, and past shops, cafés, the Palau de la Virreina, the Boqueria market, the Gran Teatre del Liceu and Plaza Real.
To the right of the Rambla is the Raval, where the Barcelona Contemporary Culture Centre (CCCB) and the Contemporary Art Museum (MACBA) are located. Highlights include the Palau Güell, designed by Antoni Gaudí, and Betlem Church, one of the city’s few examples of Baroque architecture.
