It is a pedestrianized walkway situated between Plaza de Catalunya and the port. Its name derives from the Arabic “ramla”; meaning “sandy ground”. Las Ramblas is formed by six sections. The first one is named Rambla dels Canaletes; after it we find Rambla dels Estudis; R. de les Flors, with many florist stalls; and so on. On this boulevard you can see a lot of stalls, cafes and restaurants. The nearest metro stop to Las Ramblas are; Liceu; Drassanes (green line); or Catalunya (green or red line).
