The Raval neighbourhood

Back

La vibrant rambla del Raval és un bon reflex de la gent que viu al barri: passejar-hi permet copsar la diversitat de gent que hi resideix. L’obertura d’aquesta gran artèria que travessa el barri des del carrer de l’Hospital fins al de Sant Pau a finals del segle XX va permetre dignificar l’antic Barri Xino, un dels més pobres i degradats de l’antiga Barcelona.

A Rambla for the people

Lined by palms – one of the most distinctive trees in Barcelona and with benches on both sides – the Rambla del Raval is a great place for escaping the hustle and bustle of the neighbourhood’s inner side-streets and contemplating the coming and going of the people who pass by there every day. And that is because the promenade is never short of activity, not even at night, when its cafes and restaurants are packed with customers treated to a good selection of local and international cuisine . The Rambla del Raval is the home to local activities: lots of cultural activities are organised there, especially during the months of good weather. An example is the Raval Open Market, an urban-designer trade fair for finding unusual items made with heaps of imagination and creativity. The market is held during the summer weekends.

Botero’s Cat

The Colombian sculptor Fernando Botero created this enormous and very original bronze sculpture of a cat that welcomes people to the Rambla del Raval from C/ Sant Pau.
