Barcelona - should I leave my passport in the Hotel safe or carry it in person ?

Jump to last reply


I have read all the responses to my question on avoiding pickpockets in Barcelona, and I am slightly (just slightly) concerned.

I can deal with losing cash or a credit card to a pick pocketer, but cannot afford losing my passport ! What does everyone recommend about safeguarding our passports ? Should we leave them in the room\hotel safe or is it better to carry it in a money belt on person ?

And folks, before someone starts slamming me, I realize the risks of getting robbed are the same in all big cities, and I am not singling out Barcelona. However, the difference between US and Barcelona would be that I dont carry my passport around while in the US ! ;->

Thanks all,
