Is Barcelona Safe from Terrorism?

Jump to last reply

Hello, I am an architecture student who is studying abroad Fall 2016. I currently signed up for the Barcelona semester, however with the recent ISIS attack in Paris I am paranoid. I did research and Spain, France, and Portugal are all high risk for terrorism, and that article was before the attack in Paris, proving the article credibility. I also read that Spanish authorities arrested ISIS radicals plotting in Madrid earlier this month. Barcelona does not have a record of terrorism like Madrid, but in study abroad, I will have field trips across Spain (Including Madrid and Southern Spain). I will be in Barcelona for a whole semester. My school also has an alternative trip next Fall, in Urbino Italy. I could possibly switch if I did it right away because I have to start making payments in January, because Study abroad is required. Italy has a lower threat of terrorism then Spain and I would spend most of my time in Urbino, a small town. Although, we do travel to Rome, Florence, and Venice. I know this is a year away, but I have to decide now and ISIS might still be around next year. Where would be safer, Italy or Spain? Thanks for your help and opinions.
