Jan 04 Spanish art in La Rambla, Barcelona
La Rambla is a famous pedestrian oriented boulevard running through the heart of Barcelona. A bustling area of commercial and cultural activity, La Rambla is itself one of the city’s most famous attractions. It is lined with businesses of all types and famous landmarks, including multiple buildings designed by famed Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi and a fresh produce and meat market. A note of warning: the street is known for high concentrations of pickpockets, and as a seedy area after dark.
What I enjoyed the most walking down La Rambla was the local artists’ paintings. As a tourist in Spain, I was more drawn to the Spanish theme than other general ones such as portraits… although my specialty is portraits. I thought the prices were very good for quality original paintings.
Here are pictures of some of the paintings I liked.
