Barcelona alternative

Jump to last reply

Some help, please. My husband (67), adult son(39), and I (64) are booked to fly into Barcelona, Spain on Nov. 10 (noon) and are concerned about the political unrest. We are concerned not only about safety but also about being able to enjoy our visit when the citizens are in conflict.
We enjoy experiencing the history, culture, and especially food of cities new to us. Unfortunately we have some physical limitations so climbing or difficult hiking are out. Barcelona seemed perfect for us.
Now our plan is to fly into the Barcelona airport and (if necessary) take a train or rental car to a different destination in either Spain or nearby France. Our flight leaves on the 17th late afternoon so we are a bit limited. What would be good alternatives? Thank you.
