Las Ramblas of Barcelona

Las Ramblas is a tree-lined pedestrian boulevard packed with buskers, living statues, mimes and itinerant salespeople selling everything from lottery tickets to jewellery.

The bird market on the second block of La Rambla is worth a stop, as is the nearby Palau de la Virreina, a grand 18th century rococo mansion, with entertainment and arts information and a ticket office. Next door is the Mercat de la Boqueria. Just south of the Boqueria the Mosaic de Miró punctuates the pavement.

La Rambla terminates at the lofty Monument a Colom (Monument to Columbus) and the harbour. You can ascend the monument by lift. Just west of the monument, on Avinguda de les Drassanes (Avenue of the Shipyards), stand the Reials Drassanes (Royal Shipyards), which house the fascinating Museu Marítim.

It has more seafaring paraphernalia than you'd care to wag a sextant at - boats, models, maps, paintings, ships' figureheads and 16th-century galleys.
