Barcelona completely overrated

Jump to last reply

This summer was my second visit to Barcelona. I'm taking time to write to convey my disappointment and,frankly, disgust.
Time and time again the locals just immediately began speaking to us in English. I'm not sure if it's because they want to practice their English or because they prefer Catalan over Spanish but I found it arrogant and presumptuous.

We stayed in the Monjuic neighborhood and were met with the stench of excrement and urine on all sidewalks. Absolutely filthy streets with indigents with living quarters st up in doorways. The neighborhood is filthy and gross.

Lastly, I would never recommend visiting during the summer as the tourists are so numerous that it is beyond crowded and,honestly,it's like being at a Disney park. Never again
