This section of the Ramblas owes its name to the former Estudi General, the predecessor of the University of Barcelona.

The Rambla is limited by Carme and Portaferrissa streets (a chiefly shopping area, very busy at the weekend and during the sales). This is also the Rambla of the animals, where you can buy cats, dogs, tortoises, and birds, which gives it its other name, the Rambla dels Ocells (Rambla of the birds).

Interesting sights include the Teatre Poliorama and the building of the Compañía de Tabacos de Filipinas (1880), with its baroque style.

This is one of the main Gothic-baroque monuments of the city and one of the worst affected by fires and wars throughout its history. It was built in 1553, although the interior decoration was not completed until 1855.

This is one of the main arteries of the Raval neighbourhood, with the Teatro Romea, one of the most important theatres of the city.
