Important advice

Barcelona is a large city attracting many tourists with each year, and with it petty crime. As with travelling to any major city, with recommend that you exercise caution in tourist hotspots and in public transport, to protect yourself and your belonging. Avoid carrying your mobile phone, wallet or documents in back pockets or in open compartments of your bag, especially if you are in the metro. Please be careful around popular tourist areas such as Raval (and Las Ramblas), Barceloneta Beach, and Born. These areas are often crowded and popular amongst pickpockets, but it is also not recommended to go there at night.  


EURORDIS cannot take responsibility for any items lost or stolen during the training week.
