Aside from Gaudi's architecture the Ramblas is probably one of the best known tourist areas in the city. It is sort of a paradox because it combines a lot of what Barcelona is like with a lot of tourists and high prices. Go and enjoy the street performers, la boqueria, the liceu opera house, flowerbooths, petbooths, and street drawings. Realize that you should be especially careful with your belongings, and that a beer here will cost you much more than in other areas. Las ramblas is also withing walking distance to many other attractions, passeig de gracia, shopping on portal d'angel and el barri gotico.
