La Rambla

We are turning La Rambla into a greener, friendlier, more pleasant and cultural place, with more space for pedestrians and an improved organisation of use. The new Rambla will also provide greater accessibility and connectivity between the neighbourhoods of El Raval and El Gòtic.

APPROXIMATE WORK SCHEDULE

Work on the section between Colom and Santa Madrona will begin on 3 October.

ACTION

La Rambla is the best-known and most popular street in Barcelona. Reclaiming La Rambla as the city's main thoroughfare is designed to reactivate neighbourhood life and economic activity. The priority is to promote commercial diversification, provide impetus for housing, foster cultural activities and remodel the area, encouraging people to take a stroll and meet with others.

The new layout will also improve accessibility and connectivity between the neighbourhoods of El Raval and El Gòtic, and will join the redevelopment of Via Laietana in helping to reactivate local and city-centre commerce.

The redevelopment project, agreed upon with local residents and organisations, is being developed through a process of public tender. It is divided into sections: Colom-Santa Madrona, Santa Madrona-Arc del Teatre, Arc del Teatre-Liceu, Liceu-Portaferrissa, Portaferrissa-Canaletes. The redevelopment work will begin with the first section, Colom-Santa Madrona.

The new design of this Ciutat Vella arterial road will also make it possible to create three spaces that will highlight architectural heritage and the urban setting: Moja-Betlem, Pla de la Boqueria and Pla del Teatre.

THIS IS WHAT THE NEW RAMBLA WILL LOOK LIKE

THERE WILL BE DISRUPTION FROM OCTOBER 2022 ONWARDS

Information about disruption during the redevelopment of the first section of La Rambla, between Colom and Santa Madrona will shortly be posted here.
