… I do recommend staying in the Gothic because it’s really the heart of what’s happening in the city. Just be aware, and stay clear of the following places -- La Rambla, (also known as La Rob-la), the Metro (one of the places I’ve seen the most robberies, averaging one sighting a week), and Calle Ferran (filled with drunk tourists).
was the most disappointing city of all the cities we visited during our four-week vacation to Europe. It was just another large city, very smelly, fairly unfriendly, and we had the worst hostel!
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.
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!
Please watch your bags and personal belongings. We were warned but my friend set her bag down at an internet cafe, right next to her foot, and it was stolen within a couple minutes. I've heard dozens of theft stories from other
visitors. Please never put your things down and be aware! Have fun... oh yeah, and Dino's Gelato is amazing!
I would not go back to
. The whole city seems to have a sewerage smell about it which is very unpleasant. The back streets also don't feel very safe. It seems like a fairly poor city. It also takes a lot of walking around to get from one sight to another. Having said all that, the old palace (now an art gallery) is utterly magnificent and provides a commanding view of the city. Gaudi's cathedral is also an impressive spectacle of engineering. Some of the more busy streets become beautiful and very pleasant at night, but plain by day. The city is worth stopping by if you're in or near the region but I wouldn't plan a holiday specially to Barcelona.
VEGETARIANS BEWARE ... you very well might go hungry in
! 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!
