Personal Safety in Barcelona

Page Content

Q: I'll be travelling to Barcelona in 2 weeks. I've read about the safety tips, which I've found helpful. I'm an Asian, will it be easier for pick pockets to single me out as a victim? Thanks.

A: Hello, I would say don't worry too much about this because Barcelona is a truly multi-cultural city and an Asian tourist will not stand out any more than a European tourist. I think what you need to do is simply follow our safety guidance as a precaution and you should be fine.
