Las Ramblas is the name of a landmark boulevard of the city of Barcelona, which runs between Catalunya square (in Catalan Plaça de Catalunya), the heart of the city until the ancient port. Mimes and imitators are present along La Rambla.
The walk is crowded during the day and late into the night. Is marked by newsagents, flowers and birds, street performers, cafes, restaurants and shops. Near the port tend to settle markets, as well as painters and artists.
Strolling down La Rambla can see several interesting buildings, such as the Palacio de la Virreina, La Boqueria Market and the famous teatro de El Liceo (cat. Teatre Liceu), in which operas and ballets are played. One of the side streets, of few meters long, leads to the Plaza Real (in Catalan, Plaça Reial), a plaza with palm trees and buildings with porches that host a multitude of pubs and restaurants, and where meet the purposes of collectors of stamps and coins in the weekends.
