Rambla is the most famous street in Barcelona, along which for almost 2 km. scattered numerous cafes, hotels, restaurants, various shops and living statues. It starts from the port with the monument of Christopher Columbus and ends at the biggest square of the city - Catalunya. The name of the street comes from the Arabic word "rambla" - canal, because in ancient times a canal passed through here, through which the rainwater flowed into the sea. Today the Rambla is divided into several parts: Rambla del Mar - the area closest to the port, Rambla de Santa Monica - full of street performers and artists, Rambla del Center with its numerous magazine and guidebook kiosks, Rambla de les Flors, full of florists shops, the Rambla dels Ocells with its bird and small pet sellers and the Rambla de Canaletes adjacent to Plaça Catalunya. In this last section of the street is the "Font de Canaletes" fountain. According to legend, whoever drinks from the water of this fountain will surely return to the city again. There's never a dull moment on this street – it's bustling at any time of the day, and you can't say you've visited Barcelona if you haven't walked down it.
