Pedestrian Streets

In addition to the ramblas there are many other great streets with great sights, shopping, bars and restaurants.

Note, even if a street is pedestrianised you will still get cars, scooters and bicycles going through the street from time to time so watch out.

Avenida de Gaudi

Goes from La Sagrada Familia to Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau.

Getting there:

  • Metro: Sagrada Familia

My favourites:

  • La Sagrada Familia: does not need any introduction
  • Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau: Modernista hospital in beautiful settings. Must see
