Be very street smart in the touristy areas of Barcelona and especially on the Ramblas. It is a magnet for pickpockets and muggers.

Personally, I prefer to stay away from the touristy areas and just take public transport or walk to visit the sites. You can get some very good deals in the business hotels situated on the Diagonale.
