Important Barcelona Note: Use extreme caution when in the Las Ramblas Area and in the Metro Stations..Why..PICKPOCKETS!!!!! We met far too many fellow travelers...all with the same tail of woe! Dress Down in Barcelona, store Your passports safely, the pickpockets work in teams with motorcyclists waiting to dash off with your valuables!! Stay off Las Ramblas nearest the port at night. It is a great city but you need to exercise caution in your choice of accomodation! Consider staying in the L'Eixample neighborhood above all others!
