Walking on the streets of Barcelona

We spent lots of time walking about in Barri Gotic and nearby neighborhoods.  The best known street is Las Ramblas, a wide street with only pedestrians, trees, and stands of various kinds in the center portion. There were lots of people walking at all times of day and night, places to buy food or objects. The huge Boqueria Market is off Las Ramblas.  There are lots of narrow streets, some blocked to cars - others only a bit wider than one car - fortunately there were few vehicles. The Monumento a Colón down by the harbor was closed. Lots of restaurants, Tapas bars, and shops with interesting window content. It is easy to get a bit lost since there are few right angles; but then you find a landmark or map.
