Solo Female Traveler

Jump to last reply

I will be traveling to Spain next month, visiting Barcelona and Madrid. I will be traveling by myself, and while the prospect of having all this time to myself is exciting, I want to be sure I'm safe.

I know to take the normal precautions, but my question is this. Is it okay for a woman to walk around alone at night, say as late as 11pm or later? I want to take full advantage of the Spanish lifestyle (eating dinner later in the evening as opposed to 6pm like I do at home), but I also don't want to be foolish. If it helps, I'm staying in the El Born section of Barcelona and near the Atocha train station in Madrid. Any advice would be appreciated.

Thank you.
