Hotel Duquesa de Cardona is just 3 minutes walk to the most famous avenue in Barcelona : Les Rambles.
This avenue is the heartbeat of Barcelona: a tree-lined long, pedestrian road from Plaça Catalunya to the harbour area Port Vell and cruise terminals . Les Rambles is constantly full of tourists and locals. Human statues, flower shops, street performers, artists, fortune-tellers and comical acts.. This road intersects two of the more prominent old town areas, Raval and Barri Gotic , and two interesting points are the Boqueria Market and the Opera Theatre Liceu.
There are pavement cafés and restaurants all the way down the Ramblas, but the food can be indifferent and the prices high.
