Barcelona safety issues...

Jump to last reply

It is clear BCN has more than the average number of crimes against tourists including pickpocketing and if that is not easy more agressive muggings etc. Lots of debate on the extent of this. More interested in the recommendation "don't look like a tourist". I don't care how sophisticated a traveler you are it is difficult if not impossible not to look like a tourist. Any comments on this? I would really like to know how to go about this without just doing nothing? I am referring to comments such as "walk with purpose"...not what touring is about for me...it is about walking, stopping, taking photos and enjoying all that I am seeing. I can walk with "purpose" at home. Any tips would be appreciated.
