Rambla de Sant Joseph, also known as Rambla de les Flors/The Flower Rambla, is a vibrant avenue in Barcelona where the city's real life begins. It is known for its lively atmosphere, street artists, and flower stalls. As you stroll through this part of the Rambla, you can admire a beautiful mosaic made by the Catalan artist Juan Mirò on the floor of Plaça de la Boqueria. Additionally, you can find the Museu de l'Eròtica, a museum dedicated to art and eroticism throughout history, and the Palau de la Virreina, a magnificent rococo palace housing the "Centre de la Imatge" with exhibitions on avant-garde photography. The Rambla continues towards Plaça de Catalunya, transitioning into Rambla del Estudis, named after the University of General Studies. This section is also called Rambla del Ocells due to the presence of bird vendors and colonies of sparrows in its trees. Along the way, you can stop to admire the Baroque architecture of Església de Betlem, which unfortunately suffered interior decoration loss during the Civil War. The last section of the Rambla is known as Font de Canaletes, named after a beautiful 19th-century wrought iron fountain.
