City of Gaudi and worldwide pickpockets Jan 16, 2011
Barcelona is a city of many atractions and with that comes the people who get advantage of visitors: thiefs, or also called pickpocket professionals.

In some cases you can get an idea of who they are by the look of them, but also there are many you would never guess. Some dress as tourists, with maps, mobile phone, camera, the all figure n act very sneaky.

Unfortunatly I was recently a victim of this situation. - If you go to a coffee place or restaunrant never leave the money to pay in the table, hold it with you till you can put it in the waiter/ress hand.

You'll love this city but always make sure that you don't carry values in your pockets that can be easly takin' out.

Beware of pickpockets in metro station Jul 24, 2011
Spain people actually is very nice but you need to differentiate who is a thief when the people talking with you on the street. They usually is a group action.

Beware some metro station and area as following name is mostly thief group : La Ramble / Catalunya/ Passeig de Gracia

*They steal my iPhone,money and passport but they gave me back my passport.

Beware of Pickpockets in Barcelona Mar 04, 2011
Really good tip is not to carry a wallet in Barcelona. Just carry whatever cash you will be spending or credit card with you. Plenty of pickpockets around Las Ramblas and outside Irish bars late at night so beware. Consider yourself warned.

Pickpockets on metro in Barcelona May 12, 2011
During a trip to Barcelona, many of the people I was taking language classes with were pickpocketed on the subway. I had a subway ticket (10 trips) stolen from my back pocket. Others had cash in their back pockets and it was stolen. After my experience I didn't keep anything in my pants pockets.
