Catalogna Comments

There aren't many Catalans/Spaniards in central Barcellona. A tip from a local -- avoid summer at all costs. Barcelona is much better any other time of the year.
While I enjoyed my stay in Barcellona, I would not rate it as a great city. I agree about the "criminal" feel to the city -- lots of cons trying to rip you off there. We visited in early May, and it seemed that there were hardly any natives at all! Granted, I am a tourist as well, but the city didn't seem to hold an authentic feel like a lot of other places I visited. I felt like I had to watch my back at all times while walking around day or night.
Party at Danzatoria in Tibidabo and eat at Quinze Nits just off La Rambla in Placa Reial! Barcellona is an amazing city!!!
If you're looking for a good free map of Barcellona, don't use the one the tourist office gives you for the Bus Turistic. Instead, ask them for a brochure from City Tour by ALSAtouring. This brochure includes a map that actually details all of Barcelona's streets, especially the confusing ones in Barri Gotic and Ribera. This is essential to finding your way around.
Look after your bags! There are many many thieves lingering in the metro stations and kind of push up against you and try and steal your things in your bags. So be cautious and hold on tight to your valuables. Barcellona is amazing though! The architecture and beach and sights and people are all fantastic. I suppose like in any place you have to be careful. It's also very easy to get lost in the laneways. And at nighttime there are many drug deals and dodgy people out that will try and sell you anything!
VEGETARIANS BEWARE ... you very well might go hungry in Barcellona! Not a lot of veggie food in Catalonia. Be prepared for lots of omelettes and fries. I got sick from being there for 12 days because there was nothing substantial for me to eat there. There appear to be 5 food types ham, potatoes, tomatoes, eggs and cheese, bread, and cakes. If you are vegan, forget about it! The worst thing is no hostels have kitchens, so you can't even cook your own veggie food. Being constantly hungry ruined my trip here... and it only gets worse when you venture outside Barcelona. Pizza hut and Burger king and Subway will be happy sights for vegetarians in Catalonia!
