Rambla de Catalunya is a major street in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain that runs West-East (or "mountain-sea") through the Eixample district. One of the city's trendiest streets, with many international fashion shops, and lined with lime trees, it is located between Passeig de Gràcia and Carrer de Balmes, being strictly parallel to the latter, and between Avinguda Diagonal to the west and Plaça Catalunya to the east. It can be seen as an extension into the Eixample of the famous Rambles.
