Probably every visitor to Barcelona will stroll down La Rambla at least once. The boulevard runs through the heart of the Catalan capital to the harbor, and is lined with cafés, restaurants and other sights and sounds.
Las Ramblas, the heart of Barcelona, has been hit by a terrorist attack. The vibrant and lively promenade came to a standstill when a white van plowed into a crowd of pedestrians.
Catalan police said a bomb scare near Barcelona's landmark Sagrada Familia church was a false alarm. They had earlier cordoned off the cathedral and nearby businesses.
Cities across Europe are reeling from deadly terrorist attacks. While they're relatively new in Europe, terror attacks have long been a reality in cities in Asia or Africa. How can cities be made safer?
A German woman who was critically injured in a vehicle attack in Barcelona 10 days ago has died, health authorities say. Hundreds of thousands marched in the city on Saturday to condemn terrorist violence.
