Barcelona - Safety/Language/Trip Ideas

Jump to last reply

I've never been to Barcelona and booked a trip for the first week of November.

1) The US just put a warning out (link below) so I guess my first question is, how concerned would you be? My thought is to continue on with my trip and if we happen to see a demonstration brewing, just get away from it.

2) It appears (as I read up on the city) that Catalan is the primary language, not Spanish, so I guess my second question is - if you have visited, did you find that to be an issue or were you also able to speak Spanish in the city? (My daughter was looking forward to practicing Spanish but perhaps this is not the trip for that.)

3) What was your absolute favorite "must see" or favorite activity?

4) Did anyone try a food/tapas and walking tour they found worthwhile, (focusing more on food & fun neighborhood - not mostly wine) and specifically - one that was vegetarian?

Thank you!
