Is this a Safe area?

by gaulinlin

I rented an apartment for a week on the street of Unio just off the Ramblas. Is ths a safe area? I will be travelling with 2 children ages 10 and 11 . thanks

Re: Is this a Safe area?

As a general rule, Western Europe is quite safe, and as Pedmar so correctly points out, some areas, especially the Ramblas do have petty crime like pick-pockets. Yes there are bad spots in every city, but the tourist area are quite safe.

Our daughters were 7 and 14 when we visited, and we quite enjoyed Barcelona and environs. One word of caution, if you are planning to eat out at all. The Spanish and Catalans tend to have dinner quite late. It's difficult to find a restaurant that opens before 8:30 or 9:00 PM.

Apartments Unio at Carrer de la unio, 20? Yeah, fairly safe. I'd be careful at night. And be very, very careful of pickpockets. Look up 'barcelona scams' on the Net. Personally, I'd prefer another area. It's fairly central for visiting sights in the barri gotic and beyond.

I'd prefer somewhere nearer to Pg de Gracia, Rambla Catalunya or others. I think there's a place called Hotel Urquinaona in the plaza of the same name. Heard good things about that.

Several restaurants in Barcelona are open earlier in the evening. I can recommend you to eat at Irish Bar. It is generalt a quiet place during the day.

You should be fine here, just follow the usual advice about pickpockets when visiting a city.

by bcnaroom

everything depends on your, in BCNa there is no street violence, only a lot
of pickpocket...so if you relax your vigilance, be off your guard walking on the streets, so you will be robbed, of course...it is
like at any other place around the World...

Travel Tips for Barcelona

Two Great Restaurants in Barcelona

by susangilpin

Over the course of 6 days in Barcelona, we had many meals, most of which were either terrible or just so-so. The best meals we ate were at the Mercat Santa Caterina, down the street from the Barcelona Cathedral and in the huge market that is covered by a flowing mosaic roof. I think the name of this restaurant was something like Santa Catererina Cuisin and it is located in the corner of this market. It is very sleek with an incredibly varied menu. We ate here twice during our stay and loved it each time. The other restaurant I would recommend is El Pi Antic, which is located on a small square (Plaza de Sant Josep Chirol) near Las Ramblas. This restaurant, which looks kind of dark from the outside, has a varied menu, and was filled with local diners both times we ate here. I would recommend the daily specials on the set price menu as these will definitely not disappoint.

Sky high views in every direction

by surferob

When walking around Barcelona, especially around the port or Montjuic, you'll probably notice the cable cars overhead. Along with Montjuic and Tibidabo they offer the best views of the city but the cable cars are more fun. Cost is a few euros per person.

There are stations in Montjuic Park and at Port Vell, perhaps more.

Tips

by IIGUANA

Spanish people are not used to tips, so they don't give them out. It's not usual to give tips in restaurants, taxis or bars. So don't. Now, if the service was really good and you feel that you can't go without leaving some tips to the waiter or waitress, give it to them directly and don't leave them in the table.
Anyway, if you don't leave anything, you won't be seen as a f*****g tourist. They will smile and that's all.

Estadi Olimpic de Montjuic

by vichatherly

The home of RCD Espanyol.

Built in 1929 and renovated for the Olympic games in 1992. It has seating capacity of 56,000.

I managed to get into the ground as they were preparing to play American football, Barcelona Dragons.

Monestir de Montserrat - Patroness of Catalonia.

by Jerelis

During our small hike upwards to the Monestir de Montserrat we read something about its facinating history. The monastery was first mentioned in the 9th century, enlarged in the 11th century, and in 1409 became independent of Rome. In 1811, when the French attacked Catalonia in the War of Independence, the monastery was destroyed. Rebuilt and repopulated in 1844, it was a beacon of Catalan culture during the Franco years. Today Benedictine monks live here. Via Plaça de la Creu we ended up at the Plaça de Santa Maria. We were overwhelmed by the beauty and size of the Gothic Cloister, and other structures. We also took some time to have a look at the views of the amazing Catalonian countryside. The “Serrated Mountain” (Mont Serrat) is a superb setting for Catalonia’s holiest place.

We walked over the Plaça de Santa Maria and had a look at the focal points of the square -> The two wings of the Githic Cloister built in 1477 and the modern monastery façade built by Francesc Folguero. After a quick lunch we noticed that it was getting more and more crowded. The avarage age of the people we saw must have been around 65 years! Before we entered the Inner Courtyard and the Basilica itself we learned something about the Virgin of Montserrat. This small wooded statue of La Moreneta (the dark maiden) is the soul of Montserrat. It is said to have been made by St. Luke and brought here by St. Peter in AD 50. Centuries later, the statue is believed to have been hidden from the Moors in the nearby Santa Cova (Holy Cave). Carbon dating suggests, however, that the staue was carved around the 12th century. In 1881 Montserrat’s Black Virgin became patroness of Catalonia.
