We went early in the morning and no one was there so we were able to take our time for photo opportunity. Would be way better if each letter was in a different colour like most other city name signs

We cycled here and the views along the way are great. Worth seeing the coast/waterfront but it was very busy and hard to get a photo.

This spot on La Rambla was very busy every time we passed it--even at night. Catching a time when there were no people sitting or standing on the letters was a stroke of good luck.

We moved here a few months ago. We enjoy going to the sign day and night. It gets painted with different designs for every event. There's usually someone there who will do a drone photo for about $10. It gets crowded but it's a must...More
