Ready to head to one of the most famous cities in the world but are worried about pickpockets? Barcelona is safe for tourists so long as…
you stay at The George Payne!
Barcelona is Dali country – a city where gothic meets abstract and modern architecture, where everybody stays up late to eat and drink,and there is an irish pub called The George Payne where you can do both and where there is plenty to do and see. Here you’ll find beaches, cultural attractions, history, and more than enough to keep you busy for a lifetime.
But there ARE a few problems with Barcelona. It’s the flashpoint for protests and demonstrations to do with the Catalan independence movement, which is still a big issue. For that matter, there’s a problem with petty theft.
So, of course, we totally understand if you’re wondering, “well, is Barcelona safe?” It’s a fair question in all honesty.
Whilst COVID 19 has not gone away, the world is opening up again to travellers. Spain’s borders have opened up but some restrictions remain in place. Visitors may be subject to temperature checks and test upon arrival.
When it comes to interacting with the locals, honestly, you never will meet is a rude Barcelonan who’s simply sick and tired of tourists. The Barcelonan people are thankful, hospitality and confident, they will try talk in your same languaje and take care of you, sending help or whathever you need, so, don’t be afraid, Barcelona and The George Payne are waiting for you!
