It is our compulsive nature to look out for things to do while we are traveling. But in that course, we tend to ignore things that we must avoid while travelling. But it is equally important to know about things that can put us into trouble and in this article, we will discuss the same. Here are certain things you must avoid doing in Barcelona and enjoy the city like a true local.
Eating in La Rambla
The food you get here is extremely expensive and you do not get the service as expected. If you want to dine good, you can dive into the lanes of the Gothic Quarter. Here you will find traditional Spanish cuisines and restaurants from all around the world. Nevertheless, Mediterranean signature cuisines will also be commonly available.
Leave shopping only for Sundays
Sundays being the last days, you will only get the best here. Most of the shops will be closed and the open ones will give you great deals. These stores, even on Sundays open at 10 am and shut down at around 9 pm. The stores that are present in the centre of Barcelona are open all day long and you can expect them to be shut for lunch around 2 to 4 pm.
On the spot bookings
It is important to check the ticket availability before going out for the day. You should book the tickets in advance and this way you will be able to skip the lines. If you are hiring licensed guides, there will be no trouble regarding booking the tickets or attending the monuments.
Visiting only Gaudi buildings
He is a star architect in the whole of Barcelona but do not miss out on other architectures as well. There are multiple architectural pieces from the same period of modernism, reflecting the finest art and you can research a bit before hopping out in the city.
Roaming carefree with your valuables
Barcelona is not typically very dangerous during traveling, but you should look out for the pickpockets. You must be very careful about your camera, mobile, purse, and passport when you are inside a monument or a restaurant. Tourists usually feel more secure at these places but this is where they usually get robbed.
