A special interest is represented by attractions such as the Santa Monica Art Center, Liceu (Opera), Mosaic Miro or Mercat de la Boqueria. The best way to discover the charm of the area is, however, a simple walk on La Rambla and the streets around it.
Although a little more expensive the terraces on La Rambla have a special charm and are worth trying. Because it is a fairly crowded area when you visit La Rambla you should be careful of pocket thieves who are always present in the area looking for careless tourists.
