From here, walk down one of the most beautiful and famous avenues of the city, the Ramblas. Walk the length of the street, passing by many flower and souvenir stands along the way. As you stroll, the guide will tell you how Emperor Augustus founded the city, and how he chose the name. You'll then arrive at the old port of the city. See the remains of the old city wall as you walk through the narrow streets of the Gothic Quarter, before arriving at Nova Square.
