Raval Area


The Raval has a reputation for being not the most salubrious part of the city. It is however a fantastic area to go drinking and it has a plethora of bars, many of them very unique. Sporting a very large immigrant community and a veritable maze of nooks and crannies, it's a neighbourhood that oozes charm and character. Unfortunately (especially for tourists) it's charm lies in it's suitablility for pickpockets, street crimes and prostitution. That said however, the crimes here are generally not violent and are normally just simple 'opportunity grabs' and as long as you are not alone after dark, you're pretty much as safe as anywhere else in the city. All of this shouldn't put you off checking out the bars and trendy eateries here and ingesting the darker side of the Barcelona force!
