Passeig de Gracia

Pedestrians stroll along Passeig de Gracia in Barcelona, Spain. Wide sidewalks, combined with active storefronts and sidewalk cafes, make this a popular place for pedestrians to spend time. Barcelona has a wide range of pedestrian spaces, from broad boulevards like this, to narrow streets in the medieval section of the city, to Las Rambla with its distinctive markets and street life.
